Jax Vineyards is a family owned, family run boutique winery in Calistoga. Siblings Kimberly and Trent Jackson pay homage to their agricultural heritage by using premium grapes and world-renowned winemakers to create cult status wines, all while embracing a very chic, young, and urban image.
The JAX Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Y3 wines appeal to established wine collectors and young professionals alike, as these wines are at home in the most high-end new world wine collections as well as the hottest restaurants. JAX has received high praise from sources such as Robert Parker and Wine Spectator, as well as featured product placement on the HBO hit series Entourage and the FOX phenomenon Glee.
The JAX Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is limited to less than 1000 cases per year, to ensure optimal quality under the capable hands of Kirk Venge. The Y3 wines, made by Rob Hunter, source premium Napa Valley fruits to create varietally correct, well balanced, and fruit friendly wines. Currently the Y3 brand includes Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and the new red blend Taureau.
