O'Neill Vintners & Distillers


Production and Manufacturing

About Us
In 2004, Jeff O’Neill found­ed O’Neill Vint­ners and Dis­tillers with a pur­pose: to cre­ate unri­valed relationships that suc­cess­ful­ly build brands and businesses. Since then, we’ve pur­sued our goal by build­ing a com­pa­ny that strives for con­tin­u­ous improve­ment and a cul­ture focused on team­work and problem-solving.

Our hard work is pay­ing off — today, we’re one of the fastest-grow­ing winer­ies in Cal­i­for­nia and have a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the top pre­mi­um wine and spir­its pro­duc­ers in the industry, all built behind our core values:

Forward Thinkers

Ingenuity That Never Quits

A Handshake You Can Trust

Always Deliver


Why work at O’Neill?

At O’Neill, we see each oth­er as family. 

Every O’Neill employ­ee is key to our suc­cess. We’re made up of both indus­try vet­er­ans and new­com­ers, so we always have a vari­ety of per­spec­tives. We look out for one anoth­er and believe that car­ing for each oth­er comes first. We push each oth­er to do bet­ter: to cre­ate inno­v­a­tive solu­tions, to solve com­plex prob­lems, and to exceed our goals. We step up to any chal­lenge and know that togeth­er, we add val­ue to every­thing we touch.

O’Neill is here to get it done, and it shows every day through our team’s commitment.

What we do

National Wine Brands: Our National Brands’ vision is to make wine exciting by building differentiated and relevant brands. These have been created to appeal to the modern wine consumer and their everchanging needs and desires. These are wines that are outpacing the overall wine market with staggering speed and unparalleled quality.

Exclusive Wine & Spirits Brands: We’re uniquely positioned to tailor to the needs of the customer to exact specification by owning the process of all our wines from grape to bottle. Our marketing team is “always on” and encourages direct collaboration through a unique customer strategy by understanding the opportunity of the consumer and offering a multitude of varied brand assets to increase brand growth.

B2B Wine / Grape Supply: In addition to our company-owned vineyards in Parlier and the Robert Hall winery in Paso Rob­les, O’Neill proudly partners with over 150 of California’s most experienced and innovative growers to contract over 15,000 acres of vineyards and crushing over 160,000 tons of grapes annually.

Brandy & Spirits: O’Neill pro­duces over 5 mil­lion proof gal­lons of brandy and dessert wines a year through our con­tin­u­ous col­umn and pot stills, which give us the flex­i­bil­i­ty we need to allow our Dis­till­ing Team to con­tin­ue inno­vat­ing through­out the entire dis­till­ing process.

Bottling Services: Our bot­tling lines are capa­ble of pro­duc­ing thou­sands of cas­es dai­ly, all while main­tain­ing the qual­i­ty our cus­tomers expect. And because our bot­tling line is pow­ered entire­ly by solar ener­gy, we’re also an indus­try leader in sus­tain­abil­i­ty, from the fields to the pro­duc­tion line. 


What’s Important to Us

Diversity & Inclusion


Women of the Vine & Spir­its exists to empow­er and equip women with tools to advance their careers in the alco­hol bev­er­age indus­try, fos­ter­ing gen­der diver­si­ty and tal­ent devel­op­ment across the indus­try at large.

As a proud gold mem­ber, O'Neill employ­ees have access to infor­ma­tive ses­sions on diver­si­ty, equi­ty, and inclu­sion to address the par­tic­u­lar chal­lenges that face women in the alco­hol bev­er­age industry.



In 2020, O’Neill Vint­ners & Dis­tillers and Charles Wood­son founded the Charles Wood­son & O’Neill Fam­i­ly Wine Schol­ar­ship, a new series of col­lege schol­ar­ships with Cal­i­for­nia Poly­tech­nic State Uni­ver­si­ty San Luis Obis­po and Sono­ma State University.

The schol­ar­ships aim to recruit and retain Black, Indige­nous, and Peo­ple of Col­or interested in pur­su­ing a career in the wine industry. Recipients receive 100%-paid tuition and room and board over their entire col­lege career. Addi­tion­al­ly, O'Neill will offer internships/​mentorships along the way to pre­pare recip­i­ents for life in the wine industry.



As an indus­try leader, we’re seri­ous about our goal to become a ful­ly sus­tain­able oper­a­tion. To become a cer­ti­fied sus­tain­able win­ery, we start­ed our Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Ini­tia­tive in 2013, but our com­pa­ny has practiced a pol­i­cy of con­ser­va­tion since its founding.  Some of our ongoing conservation efforts include:

  • Our 5,000 pan­el solar farm pro­duces approx­i­mate­ly 1.037 mil kWh annu­al­ly.
  • We worked with BioFil­tro to con­struct the largest worm-pow­ered win­ery waste­water sys­tem in the world, capa­ble of fil­ter­ing up to 80MM gal­lons of water a year.
  • In an indus­try first, O’Neill has hosted a liv­ing case study for the wider wine com­mu­ni­ty to learn about regen­er­a­tive viti­cul­ture through bio­dy­nam­ic farm­ing tech­niques, com­par­ing the results with our sus­tain­ably-farmed vine­yards.
  • We’ve intro­duced a grow­er cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gram that cer­ti­fies grow­ers who fol­low sus­tain­abil­i­ty prin­ci­ples. A large num­ber of our grow­ers are already cer­ti­fied, with our goal to pur­chase 100% of our grapes from cer­ti­fied grow­ers by 2023.
