Meet our owners

Our owners, Carol Wood Morrison, daughter of JL Wood, and her husband, Paul Morrison, are the managers of the JL Wood Ranch and Windswept Wines LLC.  Carol's family has farmed the same land for over 100 years.   The first vineyards were planted in 1997 at the direction of JL Wood.  Paul is from the same area, the Salinas Valley.   His family were pioneers in vegetable farming.  Both are graduates of the University of California at Berkeley (UCB).  Paul also completed the winemaking certificate program for industry professionals at UC Davis.

The family is committed to the long-term ownership of the JL Wood Ranch and have implemented sustainable farming and winery practices to minimize the carbon footprint of their activities as well as meeting the needs of their customers.
