Hundred Acre is owned by Jayson Woodbridge, a winemaker who has been defying conventional wisdom about winemaking for years. He started Hundred Acre in St. Helena, California, as well as a sister site under the same Hundred Acre name in the Barossa Valley, Australia. He makes single-vineyard, highly limited wines sourced from both locations. A darling of many wine critics, Hundred Acre wine has achieved a record twenty-two 100-point scores from The Wine Advocate between the 2002-2015 vintages.
Fans of Howell Mountain and right bank style Bordeaux will enjoy Hundred Acre’s California produced wine, the Kayli Morgan Vineyard and The Ark Vineyard-sourced Cabernet Sauvignons which are released only to the winery’s mailing list. Hundred Acre’s first California vintage in 2000 earned praise from reviewers, with more recent vintages earning very high scores from Robert M. Parker Jr. who declares that Woodbridge’s “…Cabernet Sauvignons [are] some of the very finest in the world.” The signature Hundred Acre from his Barossa Valley site is a single-vineyard Shiraz from the Ancient Way Vineyard.
Expanding his expertise to other varietals, Woodbridge is also the entrepreneur behind the Cherry Pie and Layer Cake wine labels. Cherry Pie is a Carneros-produced Pinot Noir comprised of both single and multi-vineyard bottlings. Layer Cake is an internationally sourced label with the mission to reflect diverse, layered terroir the world over through expressive varietals hand-picked and aged in French Oak barrels. With no end in sight, Woodbridge continues to advance New World winemaking through unconventional ideas combined with his consistent passion for the craft. Hundred Acre wines continue to be highly sought after and remain a fixture in the auction market. Buy Hundred Acre wine on WineBid today.
