Description:

THE LAND TODAY

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 and biodynamic farming techniques and last year, received a SWEEP grant from the CDFA for our commitment to sustainability.

To our winemaker, Josh Harp, the beauty of the land here is found beneath the surface and it’s the reason the Messina Family, back in 1999, purchased this 95 acre hillside estate on the West-side of Paso Robles. Under a 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 our fruit and imparts a complex underlying minerality to our wines. Harvest at Jada generally begins near the end of September and the beginning of October allowing for a long maturation process that results in superb development of color & intensity in character while maintaining acidity.

Jada’s approach has always been one of “sustainable excellence” – avoiding short-cuts and focusing on those improvements that would increase wine quality year after year. We are proud today to celebrate our 13th vintage making estate wines, our 95th “90/+” wine rating, and our 11th anniversary, since opening our Tasting Room doors in 2008.

Scott Hawley (Torrin/Law), David Galzignato (Paraduxx/ Charles Krug), and Eric Jensen (Booker) have all been winemakers for Jada and today we are proud to celebrate the promotion of Joshua Harp to the storied list of winemakers who have headed our winemaking efforts. What has remained the same has always been this marriage of winemaking talent with a commitment to our land in service of quality, regardless of the cost, and together with these three elements, our best vintages are truly now upon us as we ready the release of our 2017 and 2018 vintages.

Currently, the ranch is planted to 45 acres of Rhone and Bordeaux varietals, making under 5,000 cases to support our Wine Club and Tasting Room. All you have to do to be a part of this amazing effort is sit back, relax, sip, and enjoy!
