Our Story

Since 2012, Shaw Winery has been producing wines made with organic grapes. We continue to strive to provide a collection of quality California wines with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Rosé and a Red Blend that are gluten-free and vegan friendly. Sourced from organically farmed family-owned vineyards and bottled in a TRUE Zero Waste facility, the wines are innovative, eco-friendly, and affordable. Our practices of producing quality wines while embracing sustainable farming and green packaging ensures that we become the industry standard for organic grapes.

Our Winemaker

JOHN ALLBAUGH. A native-born Californian, John graduated from California State University, Stanislaus with a degree in Chemistry. After graduating, John took extensive viticulture and enology courses at UC Davis and started making wine in 2005. Beyond winemaking, John is avid about hiking, camping, fishing, sports, gardening and listening to music. His love of the outdoors fuels his passion for making the highest quality wines made with organic grapes that are accessible, affordable, and environmentally responsible. John says, "I want to create wines made with organic grapes that everyone can enjoy, from the novice to the seasoned wine consumer. My goal is to make consistent, award-winning organic wines that can be shared with family and friends anytime and anywhere."

Our Vineyards

Our wine is made with organic grapes. This means that the grapes used are grown organically, and production of the wine must be in accordance with standards set by the National Organic Program (NOP). No chemical pesticides or chemical herbicides are allowed, but less than 100 parts per million (ppm) sulfites may be used.
