SEPPI Craft Sparkling Wine is the debut project from vintner Kelsey Phelps, granddaughter of Napa Valley wine pioneer Joseph Phelps. Kelsey grew up learning from her grandfather at the dinner table, in the vineyards and by watching him build an iconic business. The name “SEPPI” was Kelsey and her cousins’ nickname for Joe, who quirkily requested he be called “Giuseppe” instead of grandpa.

Kelsey founded SEPPI Craft Sparkling Wine to honor her grandfather’s legacy while also expressing her own passion for sparkling wine and the expression of California terroir. SEPPI is crafted in the traditional Champagne method from exceptional California vineyards, resulting in wines of elegance and finesse.

Before her transition to winemaking, Kelsey cut her teeth as a corporate lawyer in the Silicon Valley law office of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. Since entering the wine industry, she has been named a finalist for the WSET/IWSC “Future 50” wine industry leaders award. She is a Level 1 accredited sommelier with both the Court of Master Sommeliers and the Wine & Spirits Education Trust. Kelsey loves to travel and spends her spare time seeking out new destinations and adventures.
