Jeff Murphy, Winemaker

Jeff monitors the acidity, Brix level (sugar content), and flavor profile of the grapes so they can be harvested at peak ripeness. He oversees the winemaking process of crushing, fermentation, blending, and oaking, striving to express the unique flavor of each grape varietal. Jeff has a Germanic tilt to his style of winemaking, revealing the terroir of the grapes by forgoing excessive oak. He has introduced several new award-winning wines to our inventory, including Port and Sherry. Jeff graduated from Penn State, worked at Glenora Wine Cellars in the Finger Lakes, and helped start Arrowhead Cellars in North East, PA before joining Johnson Estate in 2003.

Our excellent farm, vinification, tasting room, and administrative staff are integral to the success of Johnson Estate Winery.
