HUMBOLDT COUNTY FUN FACTS
280 miles north of the culinary mecca of San Francisco, “a secret wine scene is buzzing throughout the vast expanse of Humboldt’s towering Redwoods and stretching pastures, and it’s poised to make major noise,” states Master Sommelier, Ian Cauble. Among the ancient redwood trees & cannabis farms on the lost coast, some of the nations-best wine, cheese, spirits, and chocolate are being produced.
“With 1,000+ farmsteads claiming stake to the county’s 2.3 million acres of land, and a quiet charm and cool climate akin to Burgundy, you’d think this would be a wine epicenter. But, in reality, just ~150 acres are planted to wine grapes. Accordingly, every row is scrapped for—albeit on an infinitely smaller scale than Burgundy.”
“Perhaps there is nothing more blatantly obvious than my affinity for Village-level and Premier Cru Burgundy,” writes Master Sommelier & Somm Select founder Ian Cauble. “Truly, it knows no bounds, but times are changing and the artisanal wine scene is soaring well beyond France’s confines: Sure, I won’t turn down a high-quality 2017 Burgundy, but place Joseph Jewell’s “Alderpoint Vineyard” beside it and the latter will be emptied first. If you think that’s fabrication, I urge you to put it to the test next to tried-and-true French names—the only regret you’ll have is the speed at which you consumed it.
Having just returned from Humboldt, I’ve been completely reenergized and am fully ready to put Joseph Jewell right up there with (and in many cases, past) $50+ competition from Sonoma, Santa Barbara, and yes, Burgundy, too… there’s no quiver in my voice when I say this could and should be the next big thing.”
We began in 2006 making wine in a garage for people like us – those who crave time well spent with friends & family enjoying good food & great wine.
We’re proud to continue that passion today, crafting consistently sold-out small-lot wines from the unexplored vineyards of Humboldt County and the crown jewel sites of Sonoma County.
