Pasa Robles, CA | Adelaida Cellars
In 2012, Adelaida Cellars welcomed Jeremy Weintraub as Winemaker. “Jeremy brings an enormous amount of experience and perspective to our winery,” says Adelaida general manager Jessica Kollhoff. “We are very excited about what he sees in our vineyards and how he works with vineyard and cellar crews to craft the best wines for our customers.”
“I have always thought of myself as a winegrower, more than a winemaker,” says Weintraub. “And that philosophy aligns with the concept behind Adelaida. With some of the most compelling vineyard sites on the West Side of Paso Robles producing stunning fruit, my job is to capture that quality in the bottle.”
Prior to Jeremy’s arrival on the Central Coast, Jeremy was winemaker for Seavey Vineyard in Napa. During his time there, Jeremy gained critical acclaim for his distinctive wines. Most recently, Jeremy’s 2010 Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon scored 95+ points from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, December 2012 edition #204. In that same edition, Jeremy’s 2009 Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon scored 96 points.
Weintraub has a B.A. from Clark University and studied at Fresno State and UC Davis, where he received an MS in Viticulture and Enology. He earned scholarships from The Wine Spectator and the American Society of Viticulture and Enology while he was at UC Davis. He held internships at Tenuta Tignagnello in Italy, in Central Otago and Martinborough, New Zealand, and at wineries and vineyards on Long Island, New York.
