E16 Winery

E16 LogoE16 Wine Company takes its' name from 3rd generation winegrower Robert Jones' original estate vineyard located off Highway E16 in El Dorado. Twenty years ago, Robert took a path less traveled and developed Baby Rattlesnake Vineyard in the rugged wine country that would become the up-and-coming Fair Play appellation.

“First impressions are lasting,” says the adage. It might be the first taste of grandma’s apple pie, the smell of fresh-cut grass at Candlestick Park, or the sound of dad’s woodshop tools. For Robert Jones, it was his grandfather’s love of grape growing and winemaking.

Grandfather Alipio Paculba planted grapes near Lodi, California in 1940 on a small farm that later spread to 25 vineyard acres. Fruit was mostly sold to wineries, but a young Jones helped separate wine from skins in a basket press as the family made small lots for personal enjoyment. Disseminated among the tasks were lessons about attention to detail and the honor of labor — values forming the cornerstones of his philosophy on life.
