Wine Tours - Visiting J Lohr Vineyards
In 1972, Mr. Lohr planted his first grapes in Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco AVA. After this initial success, he began looking all over California for another premium grape growing property. He found what he was looking for in 1988, when he purchased 2,000 acres in Paso Robles.
J Lohr Vineyards has since become one of the most recognized names in California’s wine industry. The winery produces 3 different levels of wines at ascending price points: J Lohr Estates, J Lohr Vineyard Series, and J Lohr Cuvee Series. Mr. Lohr also produces 3 value driven labels: Cypress, Painter Bridge, and Crosspoint Vineyards.
