Winemaker's Notes

There's a pleasing weight to the wine and an opulent richness that will exceed your expectations, lingering just a bit until the inevitable smile appears: now this is Pinot Noir!

Learn About Jekel

Founded in 1972 by Bill Jekel, one of the first growers to see Monterey's potential for wine excellence, Jekel Vineyards released its first vintage (a Johannesburg Riesling) in 1978 and continues to be recognized as a pioneer in Monterey winemaking.

Today, Jekel is known for crafting exquisitely distinctive varietals from Riesling and Chardonnay to Cabernet and Pinot Noir.
