LJ Crafted Wines

Using our patented equipment, all wine is served directly out the barrel into re-useable bottles.

A one-of-a-kind winery owned by Lowell & Anne Jooste, who relocated to La Jolla, San Diego from Cape Town, South Africa 10 years ago with their 4 children. Lowell is 4th generation in the wine industry. With single-use bottles representing nearly half of wine production’s greenhouse gas emissions, our goal is to establish a high-quality wine business focusing on re-useable bottles. To achieve this, we make our wine in Napa Valley, ship the full barrels to La Jolla and using our patented equipment, serve the wine directly out of the barrel into re-useable bottles or by the glass. Accompanied by a small menu. Up to January 2023, this concept has saved over 140,000 single-use bottles from production & waste.
