Aaron began as a vision to create wines that were a detour from conventionality, an ideology that no doubt stemmed from our desire to create a new fingerprint on an otherwise well-established status quo. We turned first to our backyard of Westside Paso Robles, then to a varietal that we adored, yet had no clear international benchmark – Petite Sirah. Within this blackest of black grapes we found the wines we knew we wanted to create. Years later, we ventured even deeper in the coastal no man’s land west of the Santa Lucia Mountains and discovered that Pinot Noir was perfectly matched to the foggy windswept coast that we called home. With the pioneering spirit now deeply engrained in our blood, we began sourcing Pinot Noir from some of these extreme vineyards, knowing all to well that if the growers were brave enough to battle the elements on the coast, we would be stupid not to see what kind of wines we could produce from them. And so our second project Aequorea was born.
Winemaker Aaron Jackson has spent a combination of many years procuring oenology degrees at various institutions around the world, along with working alongside some of California’s greatest winemakers. He launched Aaron with his first commercial vintage in 2002.
