We have been so blessed throughout the years meeting and working with so many wonderful people, and we thank you very much.

We greatly appreciate your support throughout the community.

When Jerry isn’t building (construction business) he is making beer or wine.

Jerry’s dream of creating a winery and later adding a brewery fulfilled a life long dream.   As a licensed General Contractor, Jerry soon designed and constructed the winery/brewery facility near the top of the our scenic Jamul property.

J Pilar Winery, Inc. was officially established in 2008, and award-winning wines were soon gaining recognition.  Today, Jerry and his partner Ron are committed in producing and bringing to market fine wines and hand crafted beers.

J Pilar is dedicated to the memory of Jerry’s mother-in-law  “Pilar”.  She was loved by many people and is greatly missed.
