Before the inception of PlumpJack Estate Winery, there was just a humble wine store, opened in 1992 in the Fillmore neighborhood of San Francisco, called PlumpJack Wines. Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and composer/philanthropist Gordon Getty were inspired by one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters, Sir John “PlumpJack” Falstaff, a down-to-earth, fun-loving, irreverent character. With this philosophy in mind and an opportunity to create their own winery, Newsom and Getty acquired a century-old 42-acre vineyard in the Napa Valley. Dating back to 1881, this property is one of the oldest operating wineries in the Napa Valley. PlumpJack Estate Winery produces elegant wines that pay tribute to the Oakville estate vineyard and that have earn critical-acclaim. In 2016, PlumpJack Estate Winery earned 100-points from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate on their 2013 PlumpJack Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville marking just the second time in history that a wine under a screw cap closure has received this award.
