In 1997 we began the pursuit of a dream; it started with 75 acres on Jack Creek Road in Templeton, CA. Before the first vine was planted we made our commitment to farm the finest fruit possible, even if it meant a longer period of time before the vineyard became financially viable. The first priority with the fruit produced from our vineyard has always been excellence, believing strongly that without remarkable fruit you cannot make a world-class wine.

After coming to the Central Coast for many years and falling in love with the area, our search began. We were starting our family and happened to be at a point in time when we could make a move and start a new adventure. Following many weeks of searching for the right piece of land we were blessed to be led to the JRK Ranch. Upon meeting and immediately loving the owner, we bought the front 75 acres of JRK Ranch and started planting our vines. Now known as Kruse Vineyards and Jack Creek Cellars, the two pieces of the JRK have been brought back together by our family, and we are blessed to enjoy one of the truly most magical places on the Central Coast.

Along the way our family has grown and we are now living what was once just a dream: a family filled with love and working together to create exceptional wines for you. It is truly a labor of love and passion which shows through from our practices in the fields, to the production in the winery, and finally our dedication in every bottle.

We believe strongly in family and friendship and while we work very hard to bring you the best wine we can, we also work very hard to enjoy this life and share in laughter and camaraderie with our children, family, and our friends; all of whom are the most amazing people in the world.

“We hope you enjoy the wines as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you.”
Doug and Sabrina Kruse

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Located about 7 miles from the coast and on the southern end of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, Kruse Estate Vineyards is in a unique position with our cool micro-climate, securing perfect and prized conditions for the varietals we have chosen: Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and Chardonnay.

Our fruit is exposed to brisk foggy mornings brought in by the marine influence, which burns off to early afternoon sun warming and ripening the fruit. Following, invigorating breezes blow through “the Templeton Gap”, as the locals call it, which cools the fruit down and maintains the integrity of the varietals we have planted. Our Estate vineyard consists of 40 acres: 24 acres of Pinot Noir, 7 acres of Syrah, 5 acres of Chardonnay, and 4 acres of Grenache. These varieties were selected to fit the unique micro-climate of the vineyard’s location.
