Stone Bridge Cellars, which operates as Joseph Phelps Vineyards (JPV), produces up to 80,000 cases of cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, and dessert wines a year. The wines, aged in oak barrels made in France, are sold under the Joseph Phelps Insignia label. The winery, which was founded in Callifornia's Napa Valley in 1972, practices biodynamic farming, which, along with the usual organic farming methods, includes having onsite honeybee hives and allowing sheep to graze the vineyards when the grape vines are dormant. Wines are available through the company's Web site in states that allow such shipments; JVP also owns Freestone Vineyards in Sonoma County.
