Jay's Bella Vida wines reflect his passion for Burgundy and a style honed through years of thoughtful approaches to learning from some of the best winemakers. 

Prior to launching his signature J. Christopher brand, Jay worked with Dry River Vineyard in New Zealand, Adelsheim and Cameron in Oregon, and was fortunate to spend a harvest in the Mosel Valley with the Dr. Loosen winery famous for exceptional Rieslings. 

His approach to crafting Pinot Noir is much like his taking to the stage as a lead guitarist. His winemaking  is vibrant, harmonic and rich with life.

When you sip a Bella Vida/J. Christopher, sit back, relax and listen closely. The richness will bring music to the moment.
