Screaming Eagle: Jonata, The Hilt & The Pairing

Unified by the vision and passion of winemaker Matt Dees, these wines have gained cult classic status and exemplify the best of what Santa Barbara has to offer.

Jonata is one of a new breed of producers throughout the world who are thriving with a non-traditional amalgam of varieties and blends. Informed by cutting edge viticulture, meticulous winemaking, and a polyface approach to their estate, the Jonata wines are on the vanguard of an emerging quality movement in California winegrowing.

To understand The Hilt, one might need to come visit the hard and harsh conditions under which these wines are born. The Santa Rita Hills Valley is a complex AVA, and it offers a range of altitudes, aspects, soil types, and microclimates, giving winemaker Matt Dees a diverse patchwork of vineyard parcels from which to select grapes and create wines with distinctive styles.

The Paring was born out of a desire to explore, experiment and excite—without rules. Made from the vineyard blocks that are either too young or don’t fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed Jonata and The Hilt wines—The Paring is a cut of each estate. The Paring puts pedigree first, and then lets imagination take over.
