After graduating from the University of California-Davis, Jim returned to Napa Valley to begin a career that would lead him to become one of Napa Valley’s most sought-after viticulturists. For nearly 40 years, he has been dedicated to his craft, producing premium wine grapes using traditional and contemporary hand-farming methods. He and the team at Barbour Vineyards farm Jones Family Vineyard in an exacting manner and with the goal to maintain long-term sustainability.
