Location: The J. Lohr San Jose Wine Center is about 1 mile south of The Alameda exit off Hwy. 880, in the heart of urban wine country just moments from downtown San Jose and the San Jose International Airport.
J. Lohr’s focus on achieving the best possible flavors in our wines begins with careful stewardship of the land, a tenet we take to heart in the management of our 3,700 acres of estate vineyards located predominantly along California’s acclaimed Central Coast. We choose vineyard sites for their microclimates, soil composition and suitability to nourish specific varietals, and we strategically select clones for planting. We nurture and fine-tune each vineyard with diligent attention to irrigation, canopy management and cluster thinning to achieve proper vine balance. By employing viticultural best practices which have been tested and verified during Winemaker Jeff Meier’s 26 years with J. Lohr, Jeff and Red Winemaker Steve Peck are able to maximize fruit flavors from each vineyard, resulting in balanced wines of extraordinary depth and varietal character.
