Collected grapes
Our Passion

Our family was able to marry our interest in fine wines over the years with actually owning our own high quality estate grown vineyard. We purchased 43 acres in Oakville, California in 1976. Emilio Perez, our friend and resident grower and vine expert, was with us since day one. He knew every detail about our soil, weather, elevation and how best to tend to the grapes. We asked renown wine producer Joe Cafaro to join us and help us develop a balanced Cabernet. Now well known expert Corey Beck works with us now as Director of Wine making. My daughter Kathy and son Ted got involved. We did this for the love of wine but also as a special retreat for our family. We hope you love the wine as much as we do.
