  • About
    Jada Vineyard lies in an incredible pocket of the Templeton Gap/Willow Creek District, blessed with cooling coastal air and abundant sunshine throughout the growing season. With sustainability and minimizing our environmental footprint a focus of our winegrowing program, Jada has embraced organic farming techniques and two years ago received a SWEEP grant from the CDFA for our commitment to sustainability.

    Under a shallow topsoil of clay loam that dominates our 95-acre hill-side estate lie massive deposits of calcareous shale and limestone. This challenging environment contributes to reduced vigor in the vines and decreased berry size, which plays a huge part in the intensity and complexity of our fruit.

    We are proud today to celebrate our 14th vintage making estate wines, our 111th "90/+" wine rating, and in the Fall of 2019, we received our highest wine ratings to-date for our 2017 & 2018 vintages from Jeb Dunnuck.

    Scott Hawley (Torrin/Law), David Galzignato (Paraduxx/Charles Krug), and Tony Biagi have all been winemakers for Jada and today we are proud to celebrate the promotion of Joshua Harp to the impressive list of winemakers who have headed our winemaking efforts.

    All you have to do to be a part of this amazing effort is to join our wine club, visit our Tasting Room where we are renowned for our wine & gourmet cheese pairings, or purchase our wines online.
