The Chateau Tradition

As an Estate Winery, the Johnson Winery operates according to the centuries-old French and German Chateau wine-making tradition. The foundation of this tradition is the concept that a wine can not be better than the grapes from which it is produced.

All of the grapes at Johnson Winery are carefully cultivated and picked at the precise moment they are at optimum ripeness. Because the grapes need only be transported a few thousand feet for wine production to begin, the deterioration that occurs between the time they are picked and the time they are crushed is minimized. The results are exceptional wines proudly labeled, Estate Grown and Bottled in the United States.
