Jus Soli Winery
Jus Soli was founded in 2002 when a friend's family had a few extra tons of Pinot Noir from their Mendocino County vineyard and offered it in return for some of the finished wine. The wine was made at Copain by winemaker Tom Garrett. An obscure Latin legal name meaning "Law of the Soil" was chosen (pronounced "Juss Solee"). The three behind the label are Tom Garrett, Jesse Wurtzel, and Mike O'Donnell.
Multiple varietals are produced incuding a Pinot Noir from Bennett Valley in 2009.
A tasting room is planned for the Kenwood area in 2010. The wines can be acquired through the website. There is extensive restaurant distribution in Northern California and Las Vegas.

13.6% alc., 75 cases, $30. This Santa Rosa, California producer’s name is derived from the Latin, “Law of the Soil.” Gold Medal winner at the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Shy aromas of berry jam on toast, berry cobbler, seasoned oak and leaf. Pleasing flavors of raspberry coulis and strawberries with subtle accents of savory herbs, vanilla and red cherry Life Savers. A lighter, elegant wine with supple tannins that is easy to like. Very good. Reviewed November 2, 2011 ARTICLE »
