  • About
    Jada Vineyard & Winery lies in an incredible pocket in the hills of the Santa Lucia Coastal Range on the west side of Paso Robles. 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. As a result, harvest generally occurs near the end of October. This long maturation process allows for superb development of color & intensity in character while maintaining acidity.

    To wine growers, the beauty here is found beyond, in fact beneath, the surface. Under the shallow topsoil of clay loam 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.

    Come taste why the industry's top wine critics now count Jada "among the Central Coast’s best wineries".
