Superbloom takes its name from the dazzling wildflowers that blanket the desert after an exceptionally rainy season, signaling the end of winter and the promise of warmer, brighter days ahead. Now in its fourth vintage, Superbloom continues to defy categorization as our captivating zero-zero wine.

Is it a dark pink or a light red? Picture that magical moment just after sunset, the brief and poetic "violet hour" before the stars dominate the sky—that's the perfect time to uncork this enigmatic wine. Think of it as a nighttime rosé, best enjoyed with food and friends during a leisurely summer apéro.

Our original, audacious concept for Superbloom was to co-ferment red and white Rhône varieties from a single vineyard, keeping the winemaking process entirely natural by adding nothing and taking away nothing in the cellar. Typically composed of half to two-thirds white grapes and the remainder red, we label this intriguing blend as a "California Table Wine." But don't let the modest name deceive you—Superbloom is a complex and utterly unique wine crafted to showcase the distinctive character of the Love Ranch vineyard in the Sierra Foothills.

The red grapes contribute a spicy aroma and ample texture, while the white grapes impart delightful notes of salted watermelon and rhubarb, culminating in a clean, mineral finish. Superbloom is not just a wine; it's a sensory experience that captures the essence of a vibrant, flourishing landscape.

About Winemaker

Las Jaras

In a garage, two friends, Joel, a winemaker, and Eric, a comedian and food blogger, began their journey into the world of natural wine, founding Las Jaras. Their venture started with Joel's unique sparkling Carignan, inspiring Eric with its freshness compared to traditional Champagnes and Californian wines. Joel introduced Eric to classical European wines, leading them to develop Las Jaras, blending classical and natural wine-making approaches.

Their debut wine, the 2015 Sweet Berry Wine, featuring a label with Eric's comedy partner, John C. Reilly, attracted comedy fans to their low-intervention wines. This marked the start of their winery, expanding their range with various grapes and styles, from a deep Rosato to a light carbonic red called Glou Glou. Eric describes their wine-making as a personal journey, influenced by evolving tastes and inspiration from friends in the wine community, like Andy and Joe Swick.

Despite their differing tastes, Joel and Eric harmonize their wine preferences seamlessly. Eric believes in supporting Joel's passion, emphasizing collaboration over ego, a philosophy he applies to his comedy partnerships as well. They focus on a clean, minimalist approach in the cellar, picking grapes at optimal ripeness, experimenting with different vessels, and minimal oak, aiming to preserve the natural essence of the wine. Their commitment to quality is evident in their sourcing of organic grapes since 2018, encouraging growers to adopt organic practices.

Las Jaras stands out from typical celebrity-endorsed wines due to their genuine dedication to quality. Initially facing skepticism, Eric's passion for food and wine has earned respect from peers, winemakers, and restaurant managers alike.
