A brief history
Owners, John and Karen Troisi, first fell in love with the Napa Valley in the 1980's and in 2004 launched Jean Edwards Cellars (a combination of their two middle names). On their initial release, Wine Spectator Magazine named them as "one of twenty new cabernet producers to watch" in their annual cabernet issue - and since that time, Karen and John have expanded their portfolio to include multiple cabernet sauvignon wines, malbec, merlot, petite sirah, syrah, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, and rose'. Since 2004, Kian Tavakoli has been the winemaker and the winery is located in St. Helena (not open for tours or tastings).
They are honored to be working with some of Napa Valley's most iconic growers and cherished vineyards in producing these small-lot wines (with annual production around 850 cases per year).
Wines can be tasted and purchased at the Jean Edwards Cellars Tasting Room located at 1021 Atlas Peak Road in Napa, CA 94558. Tastings by appointment by calling (707) 927-3184 or by visiting the website at www.jeanedwardscellars.com
When asked what's the Jean Edwards Cellars style of wine - with a wink and a smile Karen and John's response - "wines that will pair well with food... wines that you will want to open and share with good friends... but you will want to keep the bottle at your end of the table."
