In 2010, they were named the American Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. The J. Lohr Vineyards and Winery has dedicated itself to being a leader in the industry. The vineyards have expanded over the years to encompass over 3,700 acres of estate vineyards.
The J. Lohr Vineyards and Wines company has a strong focus on education, sustainability and corporate responsibility. At their Paso Robles Wine Center, they have the largest solar facility in the the US wine industry. They hold the distinction of being a Certified California Sustainable Winegrower. Winemaker Jeff Meier has remained with the winery for 26 years and dedicates himself to the production of only the best fruit flavors to create a balanced wine that gives exceptional depth and character with each sip.
Visitors can tour the winery’s two distinct tasting rooms: one located in Paso Robles and one in San Jose. The J. Lohr’s Paso Robles Wine Center overlooks the winery’s Seven Oaks Cabernet vineyards.
