Jack Creek Cellars is a small family owned and operated vineyard and winery. Our vineyard and winemaking practices are synonymous: Quality and close personal attention.
In 1997 we began the pursuit of a dream; it started with 75 acres on Jack Creek Road in Templeton, CA. Before the first vine was planted we made the commitment to farm the best possible fruit we could, even if it meant a longer period of time before the vineyard became financially profitable. The first priority with the fruit produced from our vineyard has always been quality, believing strongly that without amazing fruit you cannot make a world class wine!
Located about seven miles from the coast and on the southern end of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, Kruse Vineyard is located within the Paso Robles Willow Creek Discrict. Secured in a unique micro-climate our vineyard receives heavy coastal influence: cool morning fog burning off to early afternoon sun which ripens the fruit, followed by coastal breezes rushing through the Templeton Gap which cools the fruit down and maintains the integrity of the varietals we have planted. The vineyard consists 40 acres: 24 Pinot Noir (6 different clones), 5 Chardonnay, 7 Syrah and 4 Grenache. These varieties were selected to fit the unique micro-climate of the vineyard’s location.
Our wines are available for purchase through our website, our winery is open to the public only on the first Saturday of each month, by appointment.
