Jeff Cohn Cellars, with winemaker Jeff

www.JeffCohnCellars.com

Jeff Cohn Cellars (formerly JC Cellars) began in 1996 when Jeff Cohn started working at Rosenblum Cellars in

Alameda as the Enologist after graduating from Fresno State. That very first harvest Kent Rosenblum asked Jeff if he

wanted to forge into make his own wine as well, and of course, Jeff being the young and eager winemaker that he was,

said yes and so the Jeff Cohn Cellars journey began. During his day job, Jeff was very excited to be working for one of

his favorite zinfandel producers with a world of many vineyards at his feet. In his 10 years at Rosenblum, Jeff produced

as many as 72 different wines in a single vintage. He was always experimenting with something as Kent gave him carte

blanche to try what ever he wanted. Jeff left Rosenblum in 2006 to focus solely on Jeff Cohn Cellars. The winery

continues to produce about 20 different bottlings including seven single vineyard Zinfandels, a handful of single

vineyard Syrahs, Petite Sirah, and a portfolio of Proprietary Blends. Wines are produced with a sense of place gently

coaxed from the vineyard into a true expression in the bottle.
