This wine was created to welcome the newest member of our family, a rescued dog, and to raise awareness for the plight of all shelter animals in need of new and loving families. Baron Cooper is a Manchester Terrier we adopted from our local Humane Society. We feel very lucky to have Cooper in our family, and we enjoy watching this sweet boy thrive in our care. Cooper is happy, trusting, playful, and gives us great joy and love. His life before he was rescued left him with some fear issues, but with time and patience, he is blossoming into the happy and carefree dog he was meant to be. The Baron Cooper wine brand is dedicated to Cooper and to all pets in shelters across the country. One percent of all the sales of Baron Cooper wines will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society. We are proud to support the nonprofit organization’s vital work.

His family has been in Lodi since the 1850’s and has been growing grapes in the Lodi area since the 1880’s. He continues that legacy today having returned to manage his family vineyards in 1994.

Where he is fifth generation grape grower he is a first generation winemaker and has been actively making wine, commercially for the last 20 years. As Greg puts it, “ With Lodi’s heritage as an AVA and its rich history of producing high quality grapes, making wine from your own heritage is the perfect balance”.

    • 97 Points,Master Sommelier, Catherine Fallis, aka Grape Goddess:This gorgeous, sultry siren of a wine is from Joey Tamura’s 8-acre plot of 44-year old vines on Lodi’s east side. It is near to Harney Lane, one of my faves, and the fruit character is similar. I love the pretty cranberry, wild strawberry, raspberry and red currant notes that mingle with the darker, sexier blackberry and boysenberry notes. There is also tomato leaf, sun dried tomato, Sicilian Castelvetrano olive, Italian black licorice, and a soft hint of both finely ground black pepper and sandalwood. It is plush, round, soft and juicy on the palate with vibrant notes of olallieberry and boysenberry, and it finishes with a pleasant tartness, leaving the palate ready for the next bite or sip. This wine is well-below its market value. Buy by the case and share with friends and family.
