Grower & Producer

A Grower / Producer is unique in that it owns and manages all of its own land, producing wine from those vineyards. This is a definite advantage over so many wineries that buy fruit from growers like us. We own our vineyards and manage them with enough care to be Certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers since 1991. (www.ccof.org)

Blockhouse Vineyard

Block House Vineyard

Block House is the largest of our vineyards at 292 acres, planted to 12 different varietals, mainly Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Cabernet. The vineyard is named for pioneer George C. Yount’s block house, the first Kentucky style block house west of the Mississippi. In the design of a block house, the top floor juts out over the ground floor so that inhabitants can protect the structure. Block houses were often constructed for defense in frontier areas.

Lincoln Creek Vineyard

Lincoln Creek Vineyard

Known for its Zinfandel, the 80 acres of Lincoln Creek is located between Highway 29 on the west and the Napa River on the east in the Oakville appellation. It is named for a small creek that cuts through the middle of the vineyard.

Mill Race Vineyard

Mill Race Vineyard

The Mill Race Vineyard is cradled by a curve in the Napa River’s eastern bank. George C. Yount’s original grist/flour mill was powered by a “race” – a diverted part of the river once on the site of this vineyard. Located in the Yountville appellation, Mill Race Vineyard is sheltered by the Yountville Hills to the west and is situated just below the border of the Oakville appellation to the north. This block of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot is 47 acres.
