This is one of the best Pinot regions in the state of California and in the world. We are in “Pinot Paradise”. –Winemaker/Owner Jaclynn Renée van Sant-Downes
Inspired by her aunt, a wine bar owner in Texas, Jaclynn took only three days after her graduation from Texas Tech, then immediately headed to Sonoma for her first wine internship in 2007. She quickly realized she was quite good at manual labor and figured out the first week that she wanted to do it forever. Jaclynn’s passion for wine, winemaking and her family is absolutely infectious. And her selection in vineyard sources has yielded some amazing results.
A winemaker to watch, Jaclynn made her dream a reality and launched her own brand in 2013. She’s since been making award-winning, 90+ rated wines from the finest quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit of the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast. As a family-focused brand, she appreciates the opportunity to source from family-owned vineyards including Bacigalupi and Robert’s Road. Working with trusted families, seeing and tasting the fruit first hand is where it all starts for Jaclynn.
