Jon Phillips

About the Winemaker

After teaching wine education for 15 years and learning the ropes at a winery in college, Jon began experimenting in his garage in 1999. Intrigued by the famed regions of Burgundy and the Côtes du Rhône, he produces and sells a boutique portfolio of wine (only 2,000 cases a year!) under his own “Inspiration Vineyards” label.
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. Shortly thereafter Jon made his first barrel of wine, a Zinfandel.
