Four decades ago, Jerry Lohr became one of a handful of early pioneers to explore the potential for premium winegrowing on Californiaâ€™s Central Coast. In the late 1960s, he began searching for the ideal location to plant a vineyard. Raised on a farm, Jerry understood the importance of climate, soil quality and location. His instincts led him to the Central Coast, a unique region with one of Californiaâ€™s longest growing seasons. Selecting Monterey Countyâ€™s Arroyo Seco appellation for his original vineyard, Jerry planted his first 280 acres of grapes beginning in 1972. Ideally suited for cool-climate winegrowing, these vineyards have become an acclaimed source for outstanding Chardonnay, Riesling, ValdiguiÃ© and Pinot Noir.
Taking a lesson from the winegrowing regions of Burgundy and Bordeaux, Jerry understood that great Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon could not be grown side-by-side. With this in mind, he began planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and other red varietals in the Paso Robles region in 1987. Today J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines includes more than 1,300 acres of vineyards in Monterey County (including the Santa Lucia Highlands) approximately 2,300 acres in Paso Robles, and 35 acres in Napa Valley.From this world-class palette of fruit, J. Lohr crafts wines highlighting bold, concentrated flavors and a vibrant sense of place. The winery offers four tiers of award-winning wines focusing on estate grapes â€“ J. Lohr Estates, J. Lohr Vineyard Series, J. Lohr CuvÃ©e Series , J. Lohr Gesture and J. Lohr Highlands Bench. In addition, J. Lohr offers a delicious array of flavorful wines under the Cypress Vineyards and ARIEL (non-alcoholic.)
