Welcome to J. Baldwin Wines Zinfandel & Petite Sirah from Sonoma Valley.

Our 2013 Vintage was our last bottling!  
It is Sold Out. 
Now we are just farmers again. 

J. Baldwin Wines are a small, family owned ranch, dedicated to Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. We started in 2000 at Dawn Hill Ranch in California's Sonoma Valley, and continued at Rattlesnake Ridge, 1400 feet above Glen Ellen on the Sonoma Slope of the Mayacamas Mountains. The first mountain vineyard in Northern California was planted nearby Rattlesnake Ridge in 1857. We encourage you to support the preservation of historic vineyards: https://historicvineyardsociety.org/

When we were producing wine, we believed that wine is made in the vineyard with minimal intervention in the winery. Meticulous attention to the vines, lower yields and merciless triage at harvest produces distinctive wines, reflecting their complete habitat: altitude, soil, sun exposure and microclimate.


Wine is an essential element in any cuisine, and the rich agricultural tradition in Sonoma Valley is an important contributor to the cuisine of the Bay Area. Zinfandel, America's heritage grape, has been planted in this valley since the mid-1800s. We strive to make a worthy contribution to that tradition.

Our sincere thanks for your enthusiasm for our wines. 
It's been a blast growing and making and blending them.
