History:

Joseph Spenker arrived in Stockton in 1868 with 27¢ in his pocket. Ten years later he owned ocer 1500 acres of some of the best ground in the Central Valley including the Ranch now called Jessie's Grove. In 1870 he went to a wedding in Stockton where met a beautiful girl, Anna Schlieman, and married her the next day. They had two children, Jessie and Otto, who grew up in the home Joseph built for his family in 1906.

Joseph planted his first vineyard in 1888 - adding more acres in subsequent years. Many of these vines remain in production today
and produce some of our most prized wine.In the late 40 ²s and 50 ²s Jessie rejected all ideas of changing the Oak Grove. The grand Christian Lady who experienced two world wars, witnessed women gain the right to vote, held out a helping hand and managed three large ranches, died in 1952. Jessie was seventy seven years old. Jessie patterned her life in her father's noble footsteps. Jessie was a true pioneer lady of the San Joaquin Valley.
