A unique wine brand with multiple country AVA's, Layer Cake is handmade in some of Jayson Woodbridge's favorite wine regions around the world. Each Layer Cake wine is crafted implementing the same small winery techniques and quality standards for which Jayon is well known. Jayson and his winemaking team work with small family growers rigorously selecting only the very best fruit to produce a Shiraz from Australia's Barossa Valley, a Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina, and an old vine Primitivo, aka Zinfandel, from Puglia, Italy.
Jayson Woodbridge's quest for Layer Cake is simply to craft wines that are stunningly good, yet very affordable; exquisite wines that can be enjoyed everyday. Since its inception, Layer Cake has enjoyed an incredibly positive reception from wine lovers and the wine press alike because it has accomplished just that - Luxury everyone can afford.
The once five mile wide Mendoza River is now mostly vineyard, abundant with some of Argentina’s most pristine Malbec vines and strikingly similar to that of Chateauneuf du Pape in the Rhône Valley. A plethora of smooth cobble on the top bewilders the eye and imagination as to how the vines actually thrive in such a rugged terrain. Clay and gravel make up the subsoil under the larger cobble forcing each vine to compete for nutrition; the result is a wine profoundly concentrated and rich, “always rich”.
