About Jackson Hole Winery
The winery property sits next to Spring Creek in Jackson, with beautiful views of the Grand Tetons. The Schroth family’s respect and appreciation for the land in Jackson Hole has been the motivation behind the founding of Jackson Hole Winery.
Since the Schroth family’s arrival to the Valley in the 1970s, they have always had the desire to create a business that would allow them to work together in one of the most beautiful settings in the world.
We currently source Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel and Chardonnay from various regions in Sonoma and Napa. We only source fruit of the highest quality, and we have truly made this our labor of love. Our winemaker, Anthony, does not believe in rushing Mother Nature. He remains patient and methodical in his craft in order to find the perfect balance. This involves care in every step of the way, from deciding when to harvest, to finding the right pH levels, to maintaining the right acidity, and most importantly seeking good fruit flavor. This attention to detail is what is priority for us at Jackson Hole Winery.
Our wines are produced and cellared at 6,229 feet above sea level on Spring Creek at the base of the Grand Tetons. The cool mountain air preserves the wine’s aromatics through a slow fermentation and aging process, allowing the wine to develop its distinctive personality.
About The Winemaker - Anthony Schroth
During his internship in 2005 at a small family winery in the Napa Valley, our vintner, Anthony Schroth, noticed how similar their layout was to his family’s property in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This set off a passion for him to one day start a wine business with his family in his home town. He knew that the Jackson climate did not provide the opportunity to grow grapes. However, he realized there was plenty of space for making and storing wine there, as the winery once was the original Spring Creek Dairy of Jackson Hole circa the late 1940s.
In order to solve this farming dilemma, they decided to go straight to the source for where great wine thrives – California’s heart of wine country. With each member of the family taking their turn at the wheel, the fruit was trucked on an all-night 20-hour voyage all the way from Sonoma, California to Jackson, Wyoming. Little did we know that this was just the beginning of our great journey.
