General Manager - The Good Life Wine Collective
As General Manager of The Good Life Wine Collective, Tracy McArdle oversees day-to-day operations of the family-owned winery’s two labels: Handwritten Wines and Jessup Cellars.
Born and raised in suburban Chicago, Tracy attended the University of Illinois, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Information and Decision Sciences. She also played golf for the University of Central Florida.
Following college Tracy worked for eight years in Chicago’s financial industry in the disciplines of business management and technology. During this period she got the wine bug, which eventually drove her west in 2008 to California wine country to work for Jessup Cellars.
Over the past six years, McArdle rose quickly through the company ranks and was recently named Group General Manager. She has worked closely with the family owners on the strategic growth and management of The Good Life Wine Collective. This young lady is an “up and comer” in the Napa Valley wine industry.
