Our first Lil’ Jumbo orange wine. A blend of macerated Riesling & Pinot Blanc blended to make a punchy-orange wine with breezy tropical fruit, all while maintaining a bit of structure. Dried nectarines and baked pears on the nose, plus a hint of garden roses rounded out by some brassy minerality.

This year for our orange wine we wanted to work with Riesling, a grape we fall in love with when it sees some skin contact. Rich when ripe, floral and tropical, but with a delicate acidity that keeps the wine standing up-right.
Riesling is an Alsatian varietal, home of our favorite macerated wines, but we were curious what the California soil and climate would lend so instead of treating the fruit all one way, we played around with various macerations prior to blending in the cellar.

The final result was something that had present fruit but wasn’t wildly acidic or tropical. 50% Pinot Blanc (a mix of 15-day and 7-day macerations) and 50% Riesling (a mix of direct-press, 21-day and 15-day macerations). The perfect pairing for a spicy Summer soup, or grilled poultry with lime and chili (although it would be great on its own, or with a bag of chips, too).

Jumbo Time Wines is a Los Angeles based natural wine project, started by Omar Koukaz & Jonathan Yadegar in 2020. We work organically grown (dry farmed & biodynamic when possible) fruit & practice zero intervention in the cellar. We are proud to work along side farmers to make wines that are the result of curiosity and excitement surrounding what the glorious state of California has to offer.
Our approach to winemaking goes as follows: enter harvest with an eye on the varietals we love and a loose idea of the types of wine we want to end up bottling. We then proceed with different methods of experimentation — all the while, working alongside (and at the mercy of) Mother Nature.
We have an acute sense of the style of wine we want to make so when it comes time to finalize the cuvées, we start by blending various barrels of the juice we’ve produced. Working with individual fermentations of each grape, we can then determine what combination makes sense in the glass together. The result is a lineup of wines that are all interconnected, playing off the decisions made during harvest, as well as in the cellar during blending.
We like to eat, and we definitely like to drink. These wines are a product of our love for gathering around a table with friends. Jumbo Time is all about exploration and our interest in figuring out how something got to be so damn good!
Our wines are fun to drink, and we hope you have as much fun drinking them as we did making them!
