“Since 1996, we’ve been making wines with all the things that matter: structure, sweet fruit, tannin, color, mouthfeel…and we have a great time making it.” – Joel Gott

Brand Story

Joel Gott Wines was born with the 1996 release of its Amador County Zinfandel, a joint effort with his wife, Sarah Gott, which earned stellar reviews from Robert Parker and Wine Spectator. Following this initial success, Joel Gott Wines released a Sauvignon Blanc in 1998, followed by a Cabernet Sauvignon and other California wines. In 2009, Joel Gott Wines partnered with Trinchero Family Estates. The relationship enables Joel Gott and his team to focus on sourcing the best fruit to produce high quality wines, while Trinchero helps Joel execute his vision for sales, distribution and marketing.

Joel Gott Wines are notable for the diverse fruits that are sourced for each appellation. The team cultivates long-term grower relationships with carefully selected vineyard sites in California, Oregon and Washington in order to craft elegant wines. Fruit from each vineyard is crushed, fermented and aged separately before coming together for extensive blending trials that drive the creation of each unique wine. Joel Gott Wines are precision-blended to pair well with a wide range of foods, all at reasonable price points.

The Joel Gott Wines portfolio features four core California wines: 815 Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. In addition to these core wines, Joel Gott Wines produces a wide range of varietals that are produced from fruit from California, Oregon and Washington.
