Napa Valley, California
Established in 1864. The vineyards of the historic Lewelling estate were established near the western footnills of St. Helena by a pioneer winegrower and horticulturalist John Lewelling.
Janice Lewelling Wight, John Lewelling's great-granddaughter, and her husband Russ built a home on the family property in 1950 and quickly became involved in operating and replanting the vineyard. Today their three sons, Alan, Doug and Dave, farm a 28-acre vineyard on a portion of the original estate, one of the oldest continuously-owned and farmed family vineyards in the Napa Valley.
Each member of the family plays a role in crafting Lewelling Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon.
