makes fabulous wines
and are even more fabulous folk. They are friends of ours, Jen Malloy and Bob Anderson: Bob was born in Kansas City, Missouri; he grew up in Redlands, California and graduated from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire with a major in history. Bob was a member of AD, Alpha Delta Phi, the fraternity which was immortalized in the comedy, Animal House. Animal House was written by Bob's fraternity brother, Chris Miller, and the character played by actor Tim Matheson, "Otter," was based on Bob. Jennifer was born in Manhattan and grew up in Westchester. She graduated from Amherst College Magna cum laude with a degree in English. While at Amherst she won awards for her fiction writing and was encouraged by one of her professors to become a writer. And so, after graduating from Amherst, she worked for ABC as an administrative assistant on the soap opera Ryan's Hope and investigated the world of fiction writing; subsequently she decided to go to law school. She graduated from New York University School of Law and then moved to San Francisco where she began her law career at Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison. While practicing law in San Francisco she met Bob and the two were married in Santorini, Greece. In 1999 Jennifer and Bob moved to Mendocino County with the goal of starting a small winery which would make distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.
