The Kendall-Jackson Wine Collections
For more than thirty years, Kendall-Jackson has remained firmly rooted in a single-minded vision: grow honest wines of exceptional quality from sustainably-farmed higher-elevation vineyards in California's cool coastal winegrowing regions.
This overarching vision drives our winemaking, and is the catalyst of how our portfolio has grown over the years. From the perennially popular Vintner's Reserve to the single-vineyard-focused Highland Estates to the rare and exquisite Stature releases, Kendall-Jackson wines are an ongoing exploration of vineyard, vintage, vintner and vision.
From mountains, ridges, hillsides and benchland vineyards along the cool California coast, Kendall-Jackson crafts a diversified portfolio of wines—AVANT, Vintner's Reserve, Grand Reserve, Jackson Hills, Highland Estates and Stature—each representative of the true, natural flavors of their origin, either as a regional blend or specific vineyard.
“Our roots run deep.” - JESS JACKSON, Founder
Stature represents the pinnacle of Kendall-Jackson winemaking excellence. Created from only our finest estate vineyards and handcrafted without compromise, it offers the ultimate expression of wine artistry.
“I learned a long time ago that it takes a thick skin to make world-class wines.” - JESS JACKSON, Founder
Highland Estates presents single-vineyard wines crafted from our estate properties. Cultivated from a specific family-owned mountain, hillside, ridge or benchland estate, the wine captures the terroir of its vineyard—that particular alchemy where climate, grape variety, soil and site combine to produce the wine's distinct character.
“Growing grapes on the side of mountains builds character.” - JESS JACKSON, Founder
Grand Reserve wines are crafted from 100% Jackson Estates Grown grapes which are hand-selected from our vineyard estates. These wines capture the regional expression of the vineyard blocks that we look to year after year. In the winery, artisan winemaking techniques prevail, and aging takes place in small French oak barrels.
“Our goal is to create the kind of wines you will enjoy the first time you taste them and for years to come.” - JESS JACKSON, Founder
Vintner's Reserve represents our commitment to Jackson Estates Grown, grapes hand-selected from our vineyard estates, which is the heart of our winemaking. Every grape for the Vintner's Reserve wines is grown in cool coastal vineyards that are managed by the Kendall-Jackson viticultural team. In the winery, this gives our winemakers a broad palette of aromas and flavors to create the final blend.
“A Fresh New Take on Chardonnay” - JESS JACKSON, Founder
Kendall-Jackson AVANT offers a fresh new take on Chardonnay. Bright and refreshing, with a crisp, lean palate, AVANT reveals only slight oak flavors resulting from fermentation in both neutral oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. Impeccably balanced and food-friendly, this fresh, vibrant wine defines a new benchmark of California Chardonnay.
