About Onesta Wines

Founder of Onesta Wines, Jillian, is described as an artist with a scientific mind. Jillian originally studied neurobiology at UC Davis, but switched her major to Viticulture and Enology after taking an introductory winemaking class. From UC Davis, Jillian traveled the globe with a desire to learn more about winemaking. She even traveled to the southern hemisphere in order to work an extra harvest season each year, as she was growing her experience and skills as a winemaker. As an Intern and later Associate Winemaker with Bonny Doon Winery, Jillian discovered her passion for Rhone varieties. Today, Onesta Wines is Jillian's passion project. Her own personal values drive the foundation of what Onesta Wines is all about: "Life is short. Live by truth and honesty and you will always find peace and happiness."

Tasting Notes:

This 2012 Cinsault explodes with strawberry and spiced rhubarb pie in the glass. It has the delicate weight of a Pinot, with the wild berry fruit forward attitude of a Zinfandel.


At the girl & the fig we’d recommend pairing Onesta, 2012 Cinsault with our Duck Confit (currant bread pudding, charred Brussels, honey-pomegranate gastrique).

At home try it with stews or roasted meat dishes, like beef, chicken, duck, or pork.
