Our onsite COVID testing program has demonstrated that we can improve access to care by delivering certain healthcare services when and while employees are working.

www.jwine.com

1-888-594-6326

Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley renowned for its cool-climate vineyard sites and diverse soil types. And in more recent years, it’s known as the home of J.

Founded in 1986, J Vineyards was established to produce Traditional Method sparkling wines as well as superlative varietal wines. Each of our estate vineyards offers a subtly different combination of soil and climate.

Junipero Gin

hello@juniperogin.com

The first of its kind, Junipero fearlessly led the birth of American craft gin in 1996.

Junípero is Spanish for juniper berry the main botanical in gin. Hell bent on elevating juniper & citrus flavors, the distilling team forged a new path by crafting each batch of Junipero in a small copper pot still, scouring the globe for the most expressive botanicals, and boldly bottling at an unfiltered 98.6 proof.

Decades later Junipero is still made by hand in San Francisco and celebrates those who break with convention to pursue an original path.

Small Vines

Wild Horse Winery and Vineyards

https://www.wildhorsewinery.com/

866-577-3597

Located in historic Templeton, Wild Horse Winery was named for the wild mustangs that roamed the hills east of our vineyard estate. Their free and noble spirit are a nod to Wild Horse Winery's commitment to spirited winemaking.

The Templeton vineyard and winery location was chosen in 1981 for its low vigor soils, proven ground water table, proximity to Estero Bay and rustic vibe. Situated at a midpoint in the Central Coast, this location is ideal for sourcing fruit from vineyards north and south of the winery. Wild Horse Winery remains a champion of Central Coast winegrowing, committed to sustainable viticultural practices and creating wines that express the region's diversity.

The varieties of soil composition and microclimates that can be found within the expansive Central Coast appellation present the opportunity to cultivate the same varietal in a wide range of growing conditions. This fact forms a key philosophy for Wild Horse Winery winemaking: multi-vineyard sourcing. While estate or vineyard-designated wines are outstanding, they offer just one expression of the grapes. Growing the same varietal in different terroirs and then carefully blending the individual lots allows us a spice rack of flavors. The ability to taste vineyard-designated wines alongside these mult-vineyard sourced wines provides a true education and exploration of the varietal.
