We loved our Private Virtual Wine Tasting with Roger and Donna Beery at J. Cage Cellars


We had a wonderful Private Virtual Wine Tasting with Roger and Donna Beery at J. Cage Cellars, known for their award winning Pinot Noir. This is a fun and informative way to learn about the different J. Cage wines from the comfort of your home. Talking to Roger and Donna is special because they are the winemakers and encourage any question you might have about the wines, winemaking, wine country and winery life.

Their story:

A Calling

For some, winemaking is a legacy. For Roger & Donna Beery and our children, it is a calling. We are a family from Austin, Texas and Colorado who were drawn to northern Sonoma County for different reasons. Our son, Conch, studied winemaking and settled here after traveling the world to learn his craft. Our daughter, Whitney, came to California to build a career in wine hospitality. Donna and I followed what we call our Wine-Stained Dream: a passion for Pinot Noir that turned us into wine writers, and then, eventually, winemakers. Each of us came to California seeking something different, but we shared a mutual respect for honesty and integrity in winemaking. We decided to combine our training and talents to craft our own J. Cage wines. We are the Beery family. Two Generations…One Passion. We craft authentic, compelling wines. Roger, Donna, Conch and Whitney

A Craft

At J. Cage Cellars, we create handcrafted wines in small lots. Our philosophy is traditional and non-interventionist. Winemaking begins in the vineyard and our winegrower partners are some of the most respected in Sonoma County. We believe that great vineyards are like great voices. We seek out the sites that deserve to sing solo, and we practice balance and restraint in the cellar to allow our unique vineyards to be heard. We build lasting relationships with winegrowers so that we can continue to listen to each vineyard as it matures over time. Conch, our young winemaker, has over ten wine harvests under his belt, honing his craft at such notable California and international wineries as Hunnicutt, Kim Crawford, Gundlach Bundschu and Kosta Browne. Together with consulting winemaker Adam Lee of Siduri, we have developed the celebrated J. Cage style that is sought by wine enthusiasts across the country.

Sustainability is a part of who we are. Our vinetenders partners are stewards of the land. We employ eco-friendly winery practices. And our packaging is humble, for the sake of the planet. We use lightweight eco-glass bottles to reduce our carbon footprint. We refrain from using foil closures as we do not wish to support dirty tin-mining operations. Our recyclable corks are harvested from sustainable Portuguese forests and are fully traceable back to their forest of origin.

A Family Legacy

Who was J. Cage?

J. Cage w/ Roger’s Dad circa 1940

J. Frank Cage was a craftsman, a builder and an avid outdoorsman who hunted and fished throughout the Texas Hill Country. He designed and built Austin’s historic Lamar Boulevard Bridge, noted for its Art Deco-style open-spandrel architecture and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. He was Roger’s great grandfather.

It might seem unlikely that a family from Austin named “Beery” would go into winemaking in northern California. But it was meant to be. Since we launched J. Cage Cellars, we have been reunited with members of the extended Cage family. We are inspired by J. Frank Cage’s commitment to craftsmanship and we are indebted to the legacy he left to us.
