In this tasting Jamie will be pairing up with Steve Peck, J Lohr’s Director of Winemaking.
For those of you new to the brand, J Lohr was founded in 1972 in the brisk winds and fog off Monterey Bay. Stony, well-drained soils and a lack of rain fall produced balanced, intense fruit, ideal for excellent Pinot and Chardonnay. In the early 1980’s that Jerry began paying attention to Paso Robles, notably because of his desire to make great Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. Nowadays with over 2600 acres of vineyards, they get to pick and choose what fruit they use, and their superb facilities and longstanding expert teams allow them to create great wines every year. This is a typical Californian success story – a family run business, great wine, sunshine and beautiful scenery!
As time has gone on they have become known for their commitment to sustainability in both the vineyard and also in what they aim to do with the brand. All of the wines they produce are certified as sustainable, bringing together concern for the environment and standards of ecological care with social impact reviews of workers conditions.
Mostly however, they have been known for producing wines of exceptional quality without exorbitant prices – and who doesn’t want that?!
