You don’t grow up in the Napa Valley without being aware of what’s up in the wine industry!  And that’s Jason Elkin’s story! Born and raised among California’s finest vineyards Jason's early exposure and appreciate of the grape and all things Napa brought his desire to learn more to "fruition!".  Considered by many today as one of the best award-winning filmmaker/producers for the wine industry, Jason’s combined gifts as a wine educator/entertainer/spokesperson remains just as intertwined in his personality as are the abundant grapevines of the Valley.
 
From an early age, Jason had a natural attraction to the visual and performing arts. Painting, singing, dancing became passions, and it was a California State School Scholarship in Dance that got him into Fresno State University at sixteen.  By seventeen, he auditioned at the San Francisco Ballet and was selected from hundreds that auditioned. Almost simultaneously, he was hired as the youngest professional dancer/singer to perform in the Cast Revue aboard Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas.   By twenty he had dance and choreography experience with Debra Gibson, Tommy Toon, Gregory Hines, Savion Glover and Janet Jackson’s dance crew. Upon returning home, he continued to choreograph for Miss Teen and Miss California beauty pageants.
 
Jason’s knowledge of wine, mated with his show-business knack for self-promotion and sales, that took him to jobs in nearly every arena of the wine and hospitality industry. This allowed him to form JTE Productions & Entertainment, a business centering to the education of vineyards and wines sales through video production.
