Thursday-Monday 12-6, Closed Tuesday & Wednesday
Jeff Cohn Cellars crafts wines that unite Rhône winemaking techniques with a spirited, California-inspired innovation to create bold and elegant wines that showcase passion, pride, and sense of place.
Jeff Cohn is a winemaker with an immense passion for creating wines that reflect their unique terroir. By sourcing fruit from esteemed vineyards in distinct appellations, he meticulously balances the pure expression of California fruit with classic Rhône influences. Jeff Cohn Cellars produces unique blends and special single-vineyard designates with over 85% of fruit coming from Sonoma's best vineyards. Jeff’s first love was Zinfandel from his days as head winemaker at Rosenblum. Since 1996, Jeff has produced award-winning Zinfandel and Rhône varietals, including St Peter’s Church Zinfandel, Stagecoach Viognier, Rockpile Syrah, and beautiful red and white blends.
Jeff visits renowned vineyards all over California, from Santa Barbara to Alexander Valley, in search of the finest fruit with distinct character for each variety. In searching for the best Syrah grapes, his journey led him to Sonoma’s Rockpile vineyard, which is now the source for his most elegant and complex wines: the Buffalo Hill Syrah, Haley’s Syrah, and the stunning 2014 So Serine Syrah, to name a few. The craggy soil of the aptly named Rockpile produces some of the most complex and distinctive minerality in all of California.

"One of my favorite producers year in year out who still seems to fly under many people's radar is Maryland-born Jeff Cohn. He has the midas touch. It is clearly obvious. Anyone serious about wine should have some of his vinous elixirs in their cellar."
