JAQK Cellars is a brand new, boutique Napa Valley winery with office headquarters in San Francisco. Named after the Jack, Ace, Queen, and King in a deck of cards, JAQK is the playful family name for a series of distinct, high quality Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast wines, each hand-crafted by veteran winemaker, Craig MacLean. To order the wines or learn more about JAQK Cellars visit them at
All of the design is by the hometown hero Joel Templin and his team at Hatch in San Francisco. I've never tried it yet, however I may buy some to put on display. Beautiful work.


  1. Love this! Joel Templin is at Hatch now? I remember following his work a few years ago at Templin-Brink. It's good to see his work again.

  2. I believe he's the owner of Hatch and of JAQK. Talented guy. In a former life, he worked in Minneapolis at CSA Design.

  3. You are kidding me. You have got to be. The world is just so small!
