When we began in 1974, there was nothing here but some ancient fruit trees, antique farming equipment, acres of golden grass, and of course, plenty of rocks.
Back then, our family consisted of Greta and George and our four college- and high-school-age children, all sharing the same vision that someday, somehow, we were going to find a family ranch and plant a perfect vineyard. Since that time, we've worked together on every aspect of ranch development, from barn raising, surveying, rock removal, stake driving, vine planting, trellising, vine training, and pruning. We are now a much larger family of 24, including five members of the fourth generation. Our family gatherings include meetings where decisions are made and implemented.
With hard work and a lot of heart, our family now produces grapes and award-winning wines for your enjoyment. Be part of our story by visiting our special vineyard in the Sonoma Valley, meeting our family, and joining in the fun. We offer excellent tasting tours and a wine club with benefits galore.
Here's to the magic in every glass.

Our goal is to grow grapes and make wine sustainably that express the unique terroir of our Sonoma Valley vineyard.
