Description 

J Vineyards And Winery
Because of the lower temperatures, the grape growing season in the Russian River Valley tends to be a bit longer, which works well for us; the more Mother Nature does to enhance the fruit, the brighter the fruit's complexity. In addition, all of our estate vineyards are Certified Sustainable and we employ vineyard management and winemaking techniques that minimally interact with the fruit so that the purest expression is evident in the final blend.

Our Director of Vineyard Operations, Scott Zapotocky, carefully monitors each vineyard block and harvests the fruit when he and J's winemaker, Melissa Stackhouse, determine that it has reached the ideal balance between fruit characters and acidity. This is a skill honed after years of walking vineyards and tasting grapes as they go through maturation, as well as knowing what type of wine taste profile is in mind. Careful inspection back at the winery ensures that only the most pristine grapes become wine.

After a gentle pressing, our Chardonnay grapes are fermented in French oak barrels with varying toast levels and aging based on the winemaker's preference. Depending on vintage conditions and that specific wine's style, a portion undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrel, adding rich complexity and depth to the finished wine.
