Jacob Toft is a self-made man. He supported himself in Paso Robles while going to Cal Poly, working in several restaurants, apprenticing at wineries and when he needed another job, went to work for Ed Sauret at the Wine Vault in 1998. Working both for Ed and Cris Cherry of Villa Creek restaurant was a revelation for Jake. Ed and Cris liked wines of all prices, colors, regions and flavors. Jake's palate grew accordingly taking as he did every opportunity to taste something new and different.

Over the ensuing years, Jake got his degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a major in Philosophy (not really as much of a stretch to winemaking as one might think) and a minor in the fledgling Viticulture and Enology Department. He also served time in various capacities at J. Lohr, Dover Canyon, Garretson, and most recently L'Aventure.

The first vintage of Jacob Toft wines was 2000 when the wines were made at Garretson. He has just finished bottling his 2011 wines.
