It's all in a Name

Joseph Jewell was an intrepid entrepreneur at the turn of the 18th century operating a transport ferry from Charleston to Boston and later on both grist mills in New England. The next two centuries tell the pioneering story of the Jewell family’s adventures as they migrated across the American west eventually settling in Humboldt County, California.

Humboldt native, owner and winemaker, Adrian Jewell Manspeaker, sparked Jewell Wine to life out of the founding of Joseph Jewell Wines. Inspiration stems from his daring ancestors as he forges a new path with the family name.

By challenging himself to source the greatest fruit from sought-after vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Humboldt County typically reserved for the big-name, old-guard producers, and working hand-in-hand with well-regarded farmers, together they unearth the potential in each grape enabling Adrian to craft small-lot Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, three to five barrels at a time. His quest is to discover his true potential as a winemaker by producing wines worthy of aging in your cellar.
