JELENA RUMORA - ENOLOGIST
Born and raised in Croatia, Jelena fell in love with winemaking as a young girl - while stomping grapes with her grandfather. The grape and olive harvests on the picturesque island of Hvar have always been her family’s favorite time of the year.
She graduated from the University of Zagreb with a B.S. in Viticulture, Enology and Pomology, later joining Rutherford Wine Company in 2011 as our Enologist.
