None of our wines are sold in stores (on purpose). Do you really want to drink a (store) wine where cost was the primary design consideration? Forget about that. Get the better stuff conveniently delivered to your door.

Plus, all of the grapes used in our wine -- 100% -- are from a single estate on California's Central Coast. Our own estate that we farm. And, importantly, our wine is not blended with wine from other regions or countries.

Our story

My family has lived on and worked with this land in Monterey County, California for almost 120 years. For decades I watched my father, JL Wood grow his vines and harvest the grapes to sell to winemakers across the region. I grew up on this ranch; it is my home.

When my husband and I took over the ranch, the vision was for our family to be working this land in another 100 years. To achieve this, we decided to not only grow and harvest the grapes but craft our own wines to personally give our customers our best expression of Monterey Chardonnay that will make them happy and match their lifestyle choices.

With this dream, JL Wood was born.

Please drink responsibly.

Ed Filice, Winemaker

We use every technique we can to ensure our farming methods and winery operations support our sustainable certification.  Our practices help us reduce our carbon footprint, conserve water, protect the wildlife, preserve the land for future generations, and enhance your drinking experience. 

And our farming practices are dictated by our approach to winemaking. They say great wine is made in the vineyard. We agree 100%. We harvest at the moment when the grapes are optimal for winemaking rather than convenient to someone's schedule. This means that our wine requires minimal processing, allowing the grapes to "show their stuff" naturally rather than through the result of manipulation using chemical inputs.
