Jelly Jar marks a return to early California winemaking, when Italian immigrants crafted food-friendly wines to enjoy around the family table – most often out of jelly jars. Long before Napa Valley became the wine destination we know today, these winemakers planted backyard vineyards and enlisted family members to harvest and crush grapes. Inspired by Italian heritage, our wines are crafted to reflect the simpler times when wine was meant for simple enjoyment. Raise a glass of Jelly Jar – a delicious, food-friendly, family crafted wine to be shared with family and friends.
This Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot dominant red blend is a luscious, fruit-forward red blend with voluptuous mouth feel and layers of blackberries, juicy cherries, with hints of violets and dark chocolate all complimented by smooth tannins and a balanced finish.

Noel graduated Boston College in 2010 with an Environmental Geology Science degree. Given her love of science, food, and the outdoors, she found a position that met all three requirements and began an entry-level harvest job at Hahn Family Wines. She was promoted and spent the next three years as Assistant Winemaker. In 2014, she moved to Jamieson Ranch Vineyard as a Production Winemaker, and became the Jelly Jar winemaker in 2018.
