Jeff Cohn Cellars
Saturday, March 9, 2019 Grand Tasting
Jeff Cohn Cellars is a small boutique winery located in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California where we produce 5500 cases annually. We have been producing single vineyard Zinfandel and Rhône varietal wines for over 22 years. Jeff’s love of Zinfandel has continued with him since his days as head winemaker at Rosenblum Cellars, but his real passion continues to be the Rhône varietals. We feel the best way to really understand Jeff’s passion and philosophy is by trying our wines. As our back label states, “You’ll never know until you try it.”
We use primarily large format French oak barrels and concrete tanks in our wine production. Collaborations with Yves Gangloff and Yves Cuilleron of the Northern Rhône, France continue to fuel Jeff’s desire for making French inspired wines. Working with these amazing winemakers, he has had the chance to hone in on new techniques resulting in wines that walk a tightrope between beautiful French sophistication and bold California fruit.
Jeff’s winemaking style has evolved over the years, but there are three core concepts that he follows year after year. Make the best wine possible from the highest quality fruit from the vineyards that showcase the terroir and unique character that sets our wines apart. Barrel by barrel the wines are nurtured to express the passion that drive his thirst for excellence, pride of putting the best wine in the bottle, and a sense of place that is expressed as a primary characteristic in each and every wine we make.
