Meet The Team!
Wynn Rolf has called Waco his home since 1963 when he came here as a Baylor freshman. He spent 46 years working as an educator in Central Texas before taking over The Grape in May 2014. His lifelong appreciation for the subtleties of a good wine, coupled with a growing interest in the wine industry, made The Grape a perfect fit. Wynn regularly hosts vendors for wine tastings, ensuring that The Grape always maintains the best selection of wines for their patrons.
Jason Rolf became interested in cooking while working at restaurants as a young man. That interest led him to seek professional training at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Austin, Texas. The next 22 years carried him to the kitchens of restaurants across the country, such as Uchi, a Japanese sushi restaurant in Austin, Big Sky Resort in Montana, and the Montauk Yacht Club Resort in New York. Jason now manages daily operations while showcasing his unique culinary talents as head chef at The Grape.

A trip to The Grape isn't the same without the warm welcome from our resident bartender Michelle! Michelle began working here in 2012. When she's not serving up delicious food and wine at The Grape, you can find her on the creeks and woods hunting and fishing.
