Fittingly, it was a wine-fueled conversation during a dinner in 2012 that led Chris and Vernon to float the idea of creating their very own label. Major League teammates and fathers of two, they shared not only a passion for wine but a passion for family as well. After their first four vintages of JACK Wines, Chris Iannetta and Vernon Wells made the decision to expand their wine portfolio by adding Two Old Dogs, through a partnership with a friend and well respected vintner, Jennifer Lamb.
Two Old Dogs, adds depth to the JACK family, and the perfect companion for a night out with friends, a night in with your loved one, or a perfect patio day. Our wines deliver the taste and quality you expect from Napa Valley at a price that’s perfect for both the everyday and the extraordinary.
"So many people save a nice wine for celebrations. Wine is certainly meant to be celebrated, but Two Old Dogs is the perfect wine for a big night or a Wednesday after work. You’ve been good - open a bottle! "
Growing up on a ranch, Michael Trujillo worked acres of hay, barley and vegetables along with sheep and cattle on land tethered to his family for generations. Michael discovered his passion for winemaking in the early 1980s during a spring break from his college studies as an engineer. On a road trip to California, he stayed with a family friend who had a small winery in Napa Valley–It was a life changing visit. Michael's wines consistently earn praise and winemaking medals, and have developed an enthusiastic following. Two Old Dogs is fortunate to benefit from the expertise and uncompromising standards of one of today's true winemaking artisans.
