Jada Vineyard & Winery lies in an incredible pocket in the hills of the Santa Lucia Coastal Range on the west side of Paso Robles. In 2017, Eric Jensen, owner & winemaker of famed Paso Rhone producer, Booker Wines, became the lead winemaker consulting with Tony Biagi of Duckhorn, Neal Family Vineyards, & Plumpjack to craft the Jada wines.
Jada's location in the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles attracted both winemakers to Jada. A low spot (1700 ft) in the range directly west of the vineyard funnels cool coastal air from the Pacific Ocean through the corridor commonly referred to as the Templeton Gap. Blessed with abundant sunshine throughout the growing season, the maritime influence moderates the heat and provides incredibly cool evenings during the growing season. This long maturation process allows for superb development of color & intensity in character while maintaining acidity.
Additionally, under the shallow topsoil of clay loam here at Jada lie massive deposits of calcareous shale and pockets of limestone. This challenging environment contributes to reduced vigor in the vines and decreased berry size, which plays a huge part in the intensity of the fruit and imparts a complex, underlying minerality & texture to the Jada wines.
Come taste why the industry's top wine critics now count Jada "among the Central Coast’s best wineries" & why acclaimed winemakers, Eric and Tony, have joined the Jada team.
