Terrabella has assembled a dynamic, efficient team that combines experienced management with key industry consultants.

 

ROBERT INGRAM, CA, PRESIDENT AND CEO

Our CEO Rob Ingram (B.Comm, CA) brings over 30 years of senior financial and management experience to the Terrabella Group. Rob has over a decade’s worth of experience managing start-ups and spent 20-plus years in senior roles at larger corporations with revenues ranging from $75-225 million in a variety of industries. Rob has spent the last seven years learning the ins and outs of the wine industry, first as a consultant on the acquisitions side and later as a founder of Terrabella. As CEO, he has taken on a direct role in the operational side of the business, from grape supply and production matters to sales and marketing strategies. Rob has created a comprehensive business and financial model for the wine industry that integrates operational, financial, and acquisition components to create a complete view of a potential winery’s financial picture.

JASON PARKES, VICE PRESIDENT,  WINEMAKER & DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

With over a hundred local and international awards, including double gold in California for premium Bordeaux blend, winemaker Jason Parkes’ hands-on approach stays true to old world winemaking with an emphasis on working closely with the vineyards and growers to ensure Terrabella has the best grapes in the valley. Jason works closely with the Terrabella team from the brand concept to the bottle. In addition to his winemaking skills and operations knowledge, Jason has a very strong understanding of the business considerations of the wine industry. This was developed through assisting in that role with other wineries and through operating his own custom crush company, producing over 20,000 cases per year.
