Our Amazing Staff
Wine Director / General Manager
In her early career, between school and travel Jess worked in restaurants, gaining experience from California to Nantucket to Australia, and eventually Portland. In 2009 Jess moved to France to indulge her francophile spirit while teaching English in a rural high school in Champagne.
Jess has studied wine formally and is a certified sommelier, receiving the top grade in her class. She has a solid foundation of global wine regions, styles, and wine making practices, but it was her fervor to taste, and eagerness to drink off the beaten path that served as her true wine education. She is an adamant supporter of small production, minimal intervention wines, which are the true match for the handmade charcuterie of Olympia Provisions.

NW General ManagerDuring his twenty-four years in New York City, Gary attended college at the Fashion Institute of Technology and worked for several major retailers before discovering that the restaurant business was his calling. After stints at various restaurants around town, Gary spent a decade working with chef Mario Batali and the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group, most recently as Service Director at Otto Enoteca. In 2013, Gary and his husband visited Portland on their honeymoon, fell in love with the charm, the food, and the rain, and moved here four months later with their two cats. As Otto Enoteca was one of the first restaurants in New York certified to cure their own meats, Olympia Provisions was a natural fit. Gary never quite abandoned fashion altogether, and currently co-owns a small business with his husband, designing custom garments for local artists and performers.
