Jazz Cellars super staff will take good care of you! Come take a “trip across California” as you try their small-lot wines from some of the highest rated vineyards in the state.

The beginning of Jazz Cellars goes back to 2005 when two neighbors and good friends discovered that they had similar passions for both fine wine and great music. During an annual trip to New Orleans to attend “Jazz Fest” (The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival) it finally hit them … it was time to move from talk to action and create a winery that would embody the spirit and improvisational nature of jazz in the production of fine wines.

Jazz Cellars is focused on producing rich and complex hand-crafted wines for those that enjoy great food, great company, great music and, of course, great wine. Their goal is to produce the best single varietal, single vineyard wines available, with a focus on Rhone-style wines, Zinfandel, and Pinot Noir. To date, their wines have won over 100 medals including three double gold medals and numerous gold and silver medals.  Check out their latest wins in the Calaveras County SF Chronicle 2022 Wineries Awards guide.

Their business is based in Foster City and they produce their wines at an urban wine making facility in San Francisco. All of their wines are handmade in small quantities – typically 100 – 150 cases of each wine.Several years ago they had the opportunity to tell the story about Jazz Cellars and how it came to be the first (and only) winery based in Foster City. Watch the video.Stay tuned as Jazz Cellars expands and evolves. Their tasting room in the historic gold rush town of Murphys, California opened in September 2016.
