Student spotlight: DEVO president Jordan Axe

October 25, 2018

Jordan Axe is in her third year as an undergraduate in the Viticulture and Enology program.  She grew up in Walnut Creek, California where she enjoys the downtown atmosphere and watching her favorite East Bay sports teams play. Living so close to the wine country, her parents would take her as they went wine tasting on weekends to Napa, Sonoma, and sometimes Monterey.  She had always admired the sophisticated mood in the tasting rooms and watched as people swirled a beautiful assortment of colors and tilted their glasses to their noses to smell all the different aromas.
