Our Story

Joseph Jewell was born in 2006, when two good friends created their first wine in a Windsor garage. With two French oak barrels, a small basket press, and exactly one ton of Russian River Valley grapes, Micah Joseph Wirth and Adrian Jewell Manspeaker created 50 cases of single-vineyard pinot noir – and never looked back. Because the two young men had no chateau or famous relatives to name the wine after, they combined their middle names for the new venture, respecting both their collaboration and individual contributions to the project.
