Meet the winemaker

Jaime (JJ) Dowell

JJ spent time in New Zealand, managing the production of a high-end Pinot Noir at Villa Maria Estate in Blenheim, before returning to California in time for the 2011 harvest, where she joined Bonny Doon Vineyards in Santa Cruz as Assistant Winemaker under Randall Grahm. This was followed by a move to Alpha Omega Winery in Rutherford, where she worked as an Associate Winemaker alongside Winemaker, Jean Hoefliger until the summer of 2017. Jean’s 5-year mentorship shaped JJ to take the helm of winemaking at Round Pond Estate in the Rutherford, Napa Valley. She then transitioned to the role of consulting winemaker in 2019 and is thrilled now to be immersed in the grapes of Sonoma where she is the US Winemaker for West Coast Wine Partners, which includes making the wines for Lake Sonoma Winery and Plume.
