JAFFURS HISTORY: In 2004 after several successful vintages at the Melville family’s Santa Rita Hills Estate Vineyard, Jaffurs transitioned to the Melville’s newly planted ‘Rhone Ranch’ at Verna’s Vineyard. We work with 4 different Syrah clones, 2 of which are planted on a steep low-yielding hillside, with the remaining plantings are at the foot of the hillside. 2012 was Jaffurs last vintage at Verna’s Vineyard. The vineyard was sold in 2013.
