Napa, California

Napa Valley growers—Hopper, Whitton, Hahn, Taddei—have farmed Vine Hill Ranch since 1884, documenting their annual plantings of grapevines, plums, pears and other crops in hand-scribed reports.

Following the footsteps of those pioneering families, our maternal grandfather, Bruce Kelham, purchased the land in 1959. He was a dedicated preservationist who moved to Napa to cultivate winegrapes after playing a role in establishing the Point Reyes National Seashore.

The old grower records inspired our wine label's ledger-style listing of vineyard blocks, vine count, harvest dates and grape yields—a tribute to the agricultural history of Vine Hill Ranch.
