The cellar is where the creative work happens. Jeremy works closely with Assistant Winemaker Nicole Papapietro to determine each grape varietal’s optimal path from grape to wine. Harvest dates are determined through careful consideration of sugar and acid but taste as well. The type of oak is deliberately chosen for balance, and time in barrel is considered on a quarterly schedule until the day of bottling.
The varietals we choose are directly linked to Jeremy’s curiosity. A typical harvest includes 20+ distinct and unique grapes. Choral & Jeremy both love the wines of Italy, and Jeremy Wine Company has developed a passionate following for their classic Barbera and Sangiovese.
We’re not limited to only Italian varietals however, our own 20 acre vineyard produces enough Zinfandel to keep all the Lodi fans happy! Jeremy also has a notable talent for developing blends that are smooth, balanced, and absolute crowd pleasers. While the cellar is not open for visitors, visit the tasting room to taste a sample and realize for yourself the delicious wine all this hard work produces!
