Winemaker Notes

Made from 100% Zinfandel, this wine is crisp and clean with low alcohol thanks to a long growing season and low sugars at harvest. We pressed off the skins within hours of crushing this fruit, allowing for a nice pale rosé color and fermented it dry in stainless steel. You’ll find crisp acidy with flavors of mountain strawberries.


Fermented and cellared in stainless steel.

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.
