The winery was founded in 1995 by Gavin Newsom, now the Governor of California and Gordon Getty, a philanthropist and classical music composer. They chose the name “PlumpJack”; inspired by “Plump Jack”, a jovial, irreverent character from Shakespeare’s play. Their intention was to convey their nonchalance towards the traditionally solemn attitudes towards wine while focusing extensively on the production of superior quality wine and ensuring a joyful experience for their customers.
At PlumpJack Winery, their distinctive wine portfolio showcases the prime fruit grown in their estate vineyard.
