The Carignan, Zinfandel, and Cabernet were hand sorted at the crusher. There was no sulphur added, no cold soaks and only native fermentation in open-top fermenters. The Carignan was 50% whole clusters, drained and pressed just before dryness and aged in neutral French oak. The Cabernet and Zinfandel were each 100% destemmed, drained and pressed at dryness followed by aging in new and neutral French oak. Carbonic Maceration was used for the Charbono.

Joel and Eric make beautiful wine that is food friendly, lower in alcohol, balanced, delicate and supple. The wines evoke an emotional response and reflect the unique terroir of the vineyards. Las Jaras Wines are designed to transcend the natural wine trend and focus on taking you back to California wine making reminiscent of the Old World Style, like the beautifully crafted wines of 1970s Napa.
Las Jaras Wines serve two purposes: having fun and the serious business of perfect food pairing. The Rosé and Sparkling Pet-Nat are bottle popping, gulpable joy to get the party started. The Carignan, Sweet Berry Wine, and Cabernet Sauvignon offer that perfect restrained balance of alcohol, acid and tannin structure that complements the food on your plate. These wines reflect Joel and Eric’s passion and the Las Jaras Wines mission. Enjoy!
