Associate Vintners' Program
Ever want to make your own wine, but do it in a painless way? We may have your answer. Deep inside the Jarvis cave is a very private but functional chamber, called the Associate Vintners’ Chamber. In this Chamber you can be your own winemaker and make your own customized wine. You can make a small barrel of 12˝ cases of wine or a larger barrel equating to 25 cases.
Don’t be worried about how to use a barrel of wine, the wine lasts ten years and gets better every year so you can have ten years of meal time enjoyment, presents and happy friends. Your premium wine with your own label will be perfect for gifts and for your own family enjoyment. Your clients, employees and friends will appreciate receiving the gift of such a special wine at holiday time.
By using only grapes from the Jarvis Estate Vineyard you can be sure of world-class wine made to your own taste. Your full cost ranges from $18,000 for a 12˝ case barrel and up so it is world-class wine at an affordable price. You will have the advantage of “wine futures” buying. You will have your wine in the future but pay today’s pricing.
You start by selecting your picking zone of grapes from among five different Jarvis vineyards. The little vineyard cart shown on the left permits easy access to the vineyards and makes your decision a pleasant experience, guided by a member of the Jarvis team.
Then you go to the Associate Vintners’ Chamber and spend serious time with Jarvis winemaker Ted Henry doing barrel tasting and learning winemaking. Once you have completed barrel tastings and chosen your own barrel of wine, you become an “Associate Vintner”. You start making your own winemaking decisions by personal visits and by email to the winemaker.
You will have all the prerogatives of visiting the Associate Vintners’ Chamber and husbanding your barrel of wine through racking, blending, sulfuring and all the way to bottling and labeling.
The wine barrel with your own bronze name plaque is yours to keep, in memory of your winemaking days.
Call or email Ted Henry, winemaker, 707-255-5280, email@example.com to become your own Vintner!
