Jada Vineyard in Paso Robles Receives Organic (CCOF) Certification
As 2023 ends, we are celebrating another year of organic certification from the CCOF – California Certified Organic Farmers. Farmed organically since 2014, it’s one of the key components influencing the quality of the estate fruit that goes into each Jada wine.
Jada Vineyard in Paso Robles Receives California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) Certification
The Central Coast’s Jada Vineyard, now in its 24th year, has been certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). Among the most critically acclaimed producers in the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles, Jada Vineyard has implemented organic farming practices across their 95-acre estate since 2014.
The lush estate combines 55 acres of vines, verdant rolling hills, wild forests, a 300-tree olive grove, and various fruit and nut trees to support the health and well-being of the vineyard and local ecosystems. In the spring and winter, a herd of over 500 sheep are brought on-site from a neighboring estate to control native pests and manage local weed populations. Since its inception in 1999, numerous Redwood trees and other species have been planted at the estate and a large pond was added to benefit local wildlife during the warmer months of the growing season. All manner of wildlife, including raptors, bobcats, foxes, and mountain lions, now roam atop the estate’s untamed woodlands.
The winery itself possesses California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA) certification, practicing sustainable cleaning procedures that reduce water usage, the utilization of eco-friendly, plant-based cleaning products, and carbon-neutral shipping. Energy usage for the well and irrigation booster pump is propelled by solar panels and in 2015, Tesla partnered with Jada to install two electric charging stations to encourage early EV adoption. Jada Vineyard also supports One Tree Planted, donating a tree for each new wine club member acquired.
Located just 17 miles from the nearby Pacific Ocean, Jada Vineyard has a coastal sensibility, highlighting a collection of fruit-forward and full-bodied wines with ample natural acidity, resulting in naturally balanced wines.
Focusing its efforts on growing and producing Rhone- and Bordeaux-inspired varietal wines of terroir, Jada Vineyard is consistently recognized as a leader in the renowned Willow District of Paso Robles. Jada’s estate Cabernets have placed in Jeb Dunnuck’s annual list of Top 100 wines (2021 and 2022) for the past two years, among numerous other accolades the estate has received.
About Jada Vineyard
Jada Vineyard was established in 1999 when fields of golden barley were planted over to grapevines by the Messinas, second-generation Italian immigrants from Brooklyn, NY who traveled to Paso Robles as one of the pioneering families of the Westside. Today, the Riboli Family, from Piedmont, Italy, continues this pioneering tradition and ambition to produce organically farmed, estate wines of distinction, character, and age-worthiness.
The Jada collection of wines includes the Rhone-inspired Jersey Girl, Hell’s Kitchen, and JackJohn; their Bordeaux-inspired Strayts, Sawbones, Passing By, and Jack of Hearts offerings, as well as their Wine Connoisseur Series which highlights Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat. Visitors to Jada may enjoy warm and welcoming hospitality in four different venues: The Tree House, The Oak Lounge, The Grove, and the Bowery Garden.
