Meet the Team

Julia

Julia Celeste first washed ashore in 2000 as a summer kid. After 13 years of long glorious summers and an assortment of island jobs, she became a year-round resident in 2013. At Rosewater, Julia works as the Operational Partner overseeing the Market as well as it's sibling location Rosewater Wine & Spirits.

Tina

Tina Miller, a Martha’s Vineyard native, trained at La Verenne in France and cooked at famed restaurants in Los Angeles and Philadelphia. She was the chef/owner of two beloved Vineyard restaurants, the Roadhouse and Cafe Moxie; a private chef; and the author of Vineyard Harvest, A Year of Good Food on Martha’s Vineyard (2005). Tina leads Rosewater’s made-to-order kitchen fare, prepared meals and growing catering operation; and embodies our desire to prepare healthy, unfussy foods served without preaching or pretension.

Christopher & Nancy

Christopher Celeste & Nancy Kramer are serial entrepreneurs and seasonal residents who first came to the Vineyard in 2003, were married here in 2007, and built a home for their blended family of six children in 2009. Part of their commitment to Martha’s Vineyard has been to invest in for-impact causes & companies in order to support the year-round population and preserve the island’s unique combination of slow-paced, nature-filled, human-scaled living. Their primary role at Rosewater is as investor partners and hands-on cheerleaders for their enormously talented operating partners Tina & Julia.

Our Name

The Rosewater name was inspired by the fictional lead character, Eliot Rosewater, from Kurt Vonnegut’s classic “God Bless You Mr. Rosewater” who chose to forgo his family fortune in favor of spreading kindness in his small hometown.

There's only one rule that I know of, babies —
God damn it, you've got to be kind.

Kurt Vonnegut
