Winemaker Notes

Produced from the Ceja Vineyard in Sonoma Valley, we consider this to be our “magical” wine because after just one sip, you’ll discover why it’s easy for this wine to simply disappear before you know it, making it dangerously delicious! Opulent ripe strawberry flavors dominate the palate, while integrated tannins with hints of American oak make this a wonderful food wine.” –Winemaker Jon Phillips

Aged 30 months in 30% new American oak

Winemaker: Jon Phillips

About the Winemaker

Jon Phillips’ says that his passion for wine is likely in his blood, as he grandparents owned California vineyards in the early 1900’s. His love of wine grew through his time working at a tasting room, teaching wine appreciation classes and taking courses through UC Davis Extension in Enology and Viticulture. Making wine in his garage for friends and family since 1999, Jon followed his dream, purchased 6 acres in the Russian River Valley and launched Inspiration Vineyards in 2002. Jon’s small batch wines have earned many accolades, and he also offers winemaking services in the region.

About the Winery
Inspiration Vineyards
Born from a dream and a mid-life career change, Inspiration Vineyards was created in 2002. Jon Phillips’ passion for wine, however, dates back much further to his grandparents who made wine in the early 1900’s. For years, Jon was determined to break into the wine business by working weekends in tasting rooms, teaching wine classes and ultimately enrolling in a class at UC Davis in Enology and Viticulture.
