It all began when Italian immigrants John and Emma Salvestrin fell in love with St. Helena while visiting friends in the early 1920's. In 1932 they purchased a portion of the historic Crane Ranch, including the Victorian home of Dr. Crane.  With the repeal of prohibition in 1933, they started selling grapes and the industry began to grow again.   

Ed Salvestrin, who grew up on the family vineyard, continued to grow quality grapes through the 60's, 70's and 80's preserving the family legacy for future generations. He still lives on site and frequently tends to his fruit trees (apples, pomegranates, grapefruit, persimmon) when he's not helping out in the vineyard.       

In 1987, Rich Salvestrin completed his degree in viticulture from Fresno State University. He returned to the family vineyard to help farm and also to expand the families grape growing business to include winemaking. 1994 was the inaugural vintage of Salvestrin Cabernet Sauvignon and in 2001 the estate winery was constructed amongst the family vines. 

Today, three generations live on the 26 acre property and look forward to the time that Rich and Shannon's three young daughters will become 4th generation owners and winemakers.
