Who is Jeremy

Jeremy started working in the wine industry at 20 years old, and hasn’t taken a break since. His introduction was as a “cellar rat”, but he swiftly moved into the lab, then onto sales & marketing. This uniquely thorough education led him to independently create support businesses that wineries needed; mainly in the design and promotion of wine labels.

After a decade of owning a design studio, the yearning to get back to the production side of winemaking couldn’t be ignored any longer. Jeremy Wine Company was created with the support of his wife Choral. Together, they began the hard work creating a winery from the ground up. Jeremy’s previous roles working in the cellar, assisting as a winemaker, and sales & marketing all came full circle as he and Choral tasked themselves in each and every one of those roles for their tiny company.

While Jeremy & Choral no longer are required to fill all the roles in their business, Jeremy’s winemaking skills have placed Jeremy Wine Company as one of the top destination Lodi wineries. Their tasting room has become well known for delivering full flavored, balanced wines with generous & warm hospitality. Together they created a charming and inviting atmosphere where the emphasis is not on the customer’s wine knowledge, but rather how welcome they feel.

Jeremy and Choral sincerely believe that wine is meant to be shared as part of delightful conversation with a tasty meal and close friends. Their goal is to share it with you.

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!

The Vineyard

The work just begins when the grapes finally arrive at the winery. Through gentle processing at the winery we become the caretakers the fruit. Gently removing their stems and moving into their appropriate temporary homes to initiate fermentation. Post fermentation it becomes a waiting game, watching over the sleeping wines as they age in barrel tasting as we go looking for that formative moment when the wines are showing their peak potential . We choose these moments for bottling this bottle you hold in your hand or glass. An expression of a past time, a year of your life.
