Vineyard Bio
J Bar M Cellars and Vineyard This is a passionate project that all came to fruition on May 10th, 2014 when we planted our first vines! The prior 5 years were- seeing if I had a significant chance of success to grow wine grapes in Reno, NV. The next step was to prove to my wife I wasn’t crazy. I had been making wine for several years with grapes purchased from California. I bring the fruit home where I have a small home winemaking facility. Now I was ready to plant my own grapes. To have the best chance of being successful I did a lot of reading, took online vineyard course from Washington State University, taking online and live winemaking classes at UC Davis and had a consultant from Napa Valley come over to pick his brain. As with most meaningful projects, there were challenges and setbacks. I was committed to making sure it was not just another nice idea that never happened. "Soil to Bottle"- There is a significant amount of pride to be responsible with every step of the process.
