CWA Staff [December 2018]
“Sleek and beautiful is how most people describe the tasting room at Jada. With gorgeous views of the rolling Paso Robles vineyards out
the window and just beyond the deck, it's understandable if you want to hang out for a while. Spend your time getting to know the lineup of bold red wines that are making Jada famous. The Jersey Girl is a favorite of many visitors. Make sure you add a cheese pairing to elevate your tasting. The tasting fees are little higher than most in Paso at $15 and you will pay an additional $3 for the cheese pairing, but it's well worth it! Jada is in the process of converting their vineyards to biodynamic growing practices. Some of the current releases are from vines that were already converted. See if you can taste the difference.”

Paso Robles: Taming the Beast
BY JOSH RAYNOLDS | SEPTEMBER 29, 2016
“Paso Robles is currently one of the hottest regions in California, and it’s not just the weather. While there were just a relative handful of highly ambitious wineries here at the turn of the century, that number has been growing steadily, with new producers like Clos Solene, DAOU, Desparada, Ledge, Aaron, The Farm, Law and Turtle Rock recently making their mark. In addition, established producers such as Adelaida, Lone Madrone, Halter Ranch and Jada have significantly stepped up their games and must now be counted among the Central Coast’s best wineries. The region’s burgeoning wine scene can only mean increased pressure on all producers in the area to keep up with a growing number of leaders, which is excellent news for everybody, especially consumers.”
Thanks to the dedicated efforts of our staff here at Jada, we recently received TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence Award for 2016.
Each year THE FIFTY BEST releases its list of best Rosé wines. We are proud to announce that Jada's 2015 1149 Rosé was included in their "fifty best" list for 2016 and received a Gold Medal award for our take on a Bandol-style Rosé.
Jada's 2012 Passing By receives highest rating for California producers in Wine Enthusiast's latest, "The Best New World Cab Blends to Buy Right Now".
