Johanna Jensen & Jack Roberts

Years of Participation

Winemakers Johanna Jensen and Jack Roberts create bright and mineral driven wines influenced by the old world with minimal manipulation and great ageability. In the vigneron tradition, they do much of the work themselves from vineyard to bottling. Based out of Napa, they work with small, mostly certified organic vineyards from all over Northern California and have a passion for lesser known grape varieties.

The crest on the bottle is of Beverston Castle, an 11th century Norman stronghold in Gloucestershire, England where Jack’s father was born and raised. All that remains of Beverston today is what you see -the moat and the tall ‘keep’, (from the middle english kype, or barrel) which was the defenders' last resort in a siege. It was also where they stored their most precious possessions, especially their wine.
