The inspiration for J. Jenkins Winery was born thirty plus years ago after Jim Jenkins visited the wine country of California while serving his internship at UCSD. The dream was kept alive with amateur winemaking, as he practiced Pediatrics in San Diego. During that time, he was closely associated with the San Diego Amateur Winemaking Society and attended enology courses at UC Davis. He retired from Pediatrics after 28 years of practice to pursue his dreams full-time. On July 4, 2003, after five years of frustrating setbacks, the first bottle of J. Jenkins wine was sold.

Since 2007, Jeremy’s on the Hill features farm-to-table cuisine with a menu that changes frequently in response to seasonal fresh produce and local, organically-grown produce. Besides the amazing produce from local farmers, diners will enjoy the freshest seafood, organic pork, free-range, organic grass-fed beef and one of the finest wine and beer lists in East County.

With recipes published in Bison World Magazine, Chef Jeremy’s bison meatloaf is a local favorite. Chef Jeremy is a featured Chef on Big Blend Magazine, contributes recipes and is often a guest on Big Blend Magazine's radio show, “Eat, Drink and Be Merry,” and is highly recognized in both the San Diego and Los Angeles areas, with publicized reviews in Edible San Diego, Ranch and Coast Magazine, Dining Out Magazine, The San Diegan, Travel World News, The Desert Sun, L.A. Times, Bison World, Julian News, Julian Journal, The Ramona Sentinel and the San Diego Reader.
