The Winery

La Jota Vineyard

Up here on the La Jota estate, I feel part of Napa’s winemaking history. The isolated, bucolic setting of La Jota’s vineyards and winery seems timeless, not a lot different than in the late 1800s.
– Chris Carpenter, Winemaker

Located in the Howell Mountain viticultural area of the Napa Valley, La Jota is a winery and producer known for their limited production of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The winery was established in the 1890s by Frederick Hess and was named after the 1843 Rancho La Jota Mexican land grant. After gaining rapid recoginiton in the early 20th Century after the Paris Exposition and World’s Fair, the winery was bought by Bill Smith in 1975 after Prohibition fell over the United States. Kendall-Jackson bought the winery in 2003, and they are still under the same ownership today. The estate has 28 mountain acres divided into three vineyards- Hill Vineyard and Winery Block Vineyard, both planted in the 1970s, and Meadow Vineyard, planted in the 1990s. Although La Jota focuses on single-vineyard production at premium prices, they create a limited edition W.S. Keyes Merlot and will always be a pioneer on Howell Mountain.
