Open: Year Round

We never intended to be in the wine business. In 1999, we purchased ten acres of land in the heart of the best agricultural region in California; to plant Granny Smith Apples! However, times were changing and the price of apples plummeted, so we made the decision to plant Cabernet grapes instead. And then we were hooked...

By 2002, we had been bitten by the wine bug. Like many winery owners, what started as a weekend hobby in the garage quickly grew into an unbridled passion to bring great handcrafted wines to a larger audience than just friends and family. We wanted to show the world we could make world class wines from one of California's first grape growing regions. Contra Costa County was home to some of the original vineyards planted at the turn of the 19th century. Due to the value of the great Brentwood soil for producing incredible produce, grape growers were encouraged to take their vines to less valued land where grazing sheep and cattle were a more common site than agriculture. Little out of the way places you may have heard of, like Napa and Sonoma Counties. Those that stayed have kept the traditions and the quality of those original vineyards, and continue the legacy of winemaking that began over 100 years ago.
