Fantesca Estate and Winery

2920 Spring Mountain Road
Saint Helena, CA 94574



Fantesca’s vineyard was originally part of Caroline Bale’s dowry when she married Charles Krug. There were vineyards on the property dating back to the 1860’s.

The vineyard fell into disrepair either during the Phylloxera epidemic of the 1900’s or during Prohibition in the 1920’s. The vineyard was allowed to go back to native forest for more than 70 years.

The vineyard was replanted in 1997 and today only 10 acres of grapes are planted on the 53-acre property.

From it’s origins with Caroline Bale, through owner Susan Hoff and winemaker Heidi Barrett, the property has a proud history of women that live up to our Fantesca namesake’s character: “Sexy, Smart, and Unpretentious.”
