J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay
How it got its name: Our cool climate vineyards in Monterey’s Arroyo Seco are strewn with river stones that reflect heat and provide ideal drainage for our Chardonnay vines.

J. Lohr Estates Flume Crossing Sauvignon Blanc
How it got its name: Adjacent to our Sauvignon Blanc vines are hundred-year-old water umes, built over Reliz Creek in Monterey’s Arroyo Seco.
Tonight’s suggestion: Bright. Crisp. And just a touch of spice from Acacia wood aging. Think seared scallops in citrus butter or halibut with lime and tarragon. Also enjoy as an apéritif with shellfish.

J. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White Riesling
How it got its name: The mists and fog off nearby Monterey Bay provide the ideal cool climate for growing the noble Riesling grape.
Tonight’s suggestion: Bright acidity and just a touch of sweetness make for a classic match with spicy Asian-Fusion cuisine or any dishes with a bit of heat.

J. Lohr Estates Falcon's Perch Pinot Noir
How it got its name: When Cynthia Lohr spotted a falcon perched next to our Pinot Noir vines in Monterey, the wine had its name!

J. Lohr Estates Wildflower Valdiguié
How it got its name: Colorful wildflowers grew among the vine rows in our original Monterey plantings of this historic variety.
Tonight’s suggestion: Crafted in the style of Beaujolais and served slightly chilled, this fresh, light-bodied red is a great match with a charcuterie plate of paté, olives, cornichon, and cheeses.
J. Lohr Estates South Ridge Syrah
How it got its name: The orientation of our sloping, south-facing Syrah vineyards in Paso Robles are ideal for growing this classic Rhône variety.
Tonight’s suggestion: Dark berries and spice flavors. A sensational match with slow-roasted pork shoulder and herbed potatoes or with this evening’s sausage pizza.
