The Perch

Everyone loves J. Lohr Estates Falcon’s Perch Pinot Noir. But it’s not just the pure, cool-climate Pinot deliciousness. Did you know that it is the answer to many of life’s most challenging problems? Or that there actually is a perching falcon?

Check out our always-entertaining series of videos The Perch, wherein winemakers turned film hosts Steve Peck and Brenden Wood lead us on a playful look at everything Pinot Noir. It may not change your life but, then again, you never know. Pour a glass of Falcon’s Perch, kick back, view, chuckle, and share.



Want more of Steve and Brenden? Every great film production has bloopers, out-takes, and cuts that get left on the editing room floor. You may think that vintners / actors Steve and Brenden are naturals but even they didn’t get it right first time, every time. In our final video in The Perch series, we invite you to go behind-the-scenes and take a look at a few clips and “still rolling” scenes that didn’t make the final blend.



Pinot Noir is all about place. When grown in classic, cool climate influenced locales like Burgundy, Oregon, or Monterey, Pinot Noir directly reflects its individual site. At J. Lohr, we produce three very distinct Pinots, each with their own style and sense of place.

Why go to such lengths to craft three different wines from the grape that many label as ‘finicky’ and ‘capricious?’ Because we can! Established vineyards and long experience like ours are a requirement for creating great Pinot Noir. Our perfect combination of people, place and craft equate to three superb wines that will speak to every Pinot Noir fan’s love of the varietal.

The flavor profiles of each of these wines are unique – balancing delicacy and structure that is the hallmark both of the Arroyo Seco and Santa Lucia Highlands, the source AVAs for our Pinot Noir program.

While your palate has the ultimate vote, wine writers and reviewers agree there is something special about each of these releases. Here’s what the critics are saying…
