Inspiration Vineyards and Winery

Can you believe that we have been actively producing wines since the turn of the century?

Slight exaggeration, but actually true; although it has only been since 1999 that Jon and Barbara Phillips started producing wine for friends and family, wine has been a part of their lives for over twenty years. They met in 1986, while Jon was working in the tasting room of the Mirassou winery in San Jose. Jon's interest in wine is more deeply rooted however, likely as a result of the vineyards that were owned and farmed by his Great Grandfather John Schubert, who moved to San Martin, California from his native home in Czechoslovakia in the early 1900's.

In 2001, Jon and Barbara followed their dreams by purchasing a six acre Russian River Valley vineyard property and moving to Sonoma County to start their own winery.  In 2010, after years of producing wines out of their garage at their vineyard property on Olivet Road, Inspiration Vineyard moved its production to the Pine Creek Business Park in urban Santa Rosa.  Today, Inspiration Vineyards and Winery annually produces approximately 2000 cases of wine spread among eight different varieties and is open daily for wine tasting and sales.

Their mission is a simple one; produce high quality, food friendly wines at an affordable price, using the finest quality grapes grown in Sonoma County’s three Wine Road AVA’s.
