Celebrating 60, 100, & 200 Years


The winery's founder, Frederick Johnson Sr. (1921-1998), would have been 100 years old on Sunday, September 5th.  The Tasting Room and old barn are now 100 years old and the farmhouse is 200 years old.  And his winery, which he established in 1961, is celebrating 60 years this year. So, yes, we're celebrating multiple anniversaries!

FSJ Sr receiving Distinguished Flying Cross 1944
We think that Fred Sr. would be proud to see the vineyards loaded with fruit, ready fo
r the coming harvest.  And in the century-old Tasting Room, formerly his father's apple cold storage facility, he'd be proud to see over forty award-winning wines on the shelves.

Fred Sr.'s Favorite Wine:
And on those shelves is our award-winning Founders' Red, named for Fred Sr. and his father. This wine is made from a little Pinot Noir and Fred Sr.'s favorite Chancellor grapes, which are planted on the site of his father's favorite cherry orchard. To celebrate these Labor Day Anniversaries, we're offering a 20% discount on
Founders' Red from September 2-26
(use Promotion Code 60YEARS).

Please join us in these celebrations!

Brut, effective September 2-26, 2021.

Winemaker Jeff Murphy's tasting notes for the Brut, made from Pinot Noir & Chardonnay:
"Elegant effervescence releases soft notes of freshly baked bread
that mingle with aromas of green apple, fresh berries, and white peach. 
Clean, lasting finish with hints of mineral and slate".
