Viticulturist & Winemaker
Viticulturist and Winemaker Pierre Seillan first began working with Cabernet Franc more than four decades ago at his family’s estate in Armagnac. He later moved on to the Loire Valley, and then spent twenty years in Bordeaux before being lured to California in 1997. At Arcanum, Pierre works closely with his Italian team, believing his job is to respect tradition, but also to do his part to guide and enhance it. By doing so he remains true to the distinguished history of Italian viticulture.
Julia Jackson formed her first impression of Tuscany at age six, when her family purchased the Tenuta di Arceno estate. She grew up spending her summers at the estate and fell in love with its beauty and diversity. Julia brings her family’s passion to Arcanum, their dedication to its future and the commitment of the second generation of one of the world’s most significant wine families.
