Jaffurs

Jaffurs Wine Cellars is owned by the husband and wife team of Craig Jaffurs and Lee Wardlaw Jaffurs. Craig worked in the aerospace industry before starting his own winery in the early 1990s. His first commercial vintage was a 1994 Santa Barbara County Syrah. He is the winemaker. Jaffurs Wine Cellars focuses on Rhone varietal wines made in small lots. The winery owns no vineyards but sources grapes from Santa Barbara County vineyards. The winery itself is in downtown, historic Santa Barbara. Jaffurs makes red and white wines that impress reviewers. Its Syrahs are consistently well rated. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “Jaffurs has emerged as one of Santa Barbara’s finest, most consistent winemakers.”
