New life returns to the vineyards as the annual growing cycle begins again. Spring can be seen all around in budbreak on the vines, the wildflowers among the rows, and the fragrant scent of bloom in the air. In our homes, we welcome spring with family gathering, traditions, and favorite dishes.

As winegrowers, we embrace our close partnership with nature. In the vineyards, we work hard to nurture balance and protect resources. We are proud that J. Lohr was among the first in California to be “Certified California Sustainable” in 2010 – an honor and commitment we have achieved every year since.

Celebrations and Pairings

Spring is all about celebrations, large and small, religious and social, as we mark the return of warmer weather, longer days, and new growth. It’s time to gather again with friends and family. J. Lohr has lots of suggestions for “perfect pairings” that will help elevate your springtime gatherings.

Spring Among The Vines

As winter draws to a close, the vines in Monterey, Paso Robles, and Napa Valley are bare, pruned, and dormant – waiting for Mother Nature’s signal to begin again their annual cycle.

It is at this crucial time of the year that we help set the conditions for the growing season that will culminate in fall’s harvest. Conscientious, sustainable practices like early sowing of cover crops among the rows are part of the late winter routine.

Simply put, sustainability at J. Lohr is both a goal and a reality. It is an overarching way we think about our vineyards and winery. The Lohr family and team helped “write the book” on sustainable farming practices in Monterey, Paso Robles, and Napa Valley. We were among the very first to pass the rigorous requirements for “certified sustainable” status ten years ago and have maintained the certification every season since.
