Terrassen is a project by Thomas Pastuszak, wine director of The Nomad Hotel, and his wife Jessica Brown.
“I had always thought I’d go into medicine,” says Thomas Pastuszak. A neurobiology major at Cornell and a classical pianist, he was taking his MCATs and working in restaurants to pay off his student loans when he decided to change course. “It was wine that drew me in,” he says, “the combination of art and science that goes into a wine program. I never looked back.”
Thomas and Jessica have made it their mission to show people the potential of the Finger Lakes region.
