In 1996, green rhumb David Jackson purchased an exceptional 28 year old, dry farmed vineyard in northern Calistoga. Shortly after David purchased the vineyard, his entrepreneurial son, Trent got inspired to build on his father's dream. Using the grapes from his father's vineyard, Trent bottled and produced his first vintage in his San Francisco garage. An award winner? No, but there was promise here and an even greater determination to make wine. Trent immediately enlisted cult winemaker Kirk Venge to take over.

By the late 90's, Trent's focus on quality and limited production attracted a loyal word of mouth following. However working full time in technology, Trent soon began to realize that his promising hobby required full time attention. In 2002, Trent turned to his sister Kimberly, a newly minted MBA who co-founded the wine club at Vanderbilt University. Without hesitation, Kimberly jumped into the business with tenacity and passion. The vision is to produce high quality wines, with a chic label, and fair price point. Kimberly asserts that "the next generation is looking for a modern brand, great quality, and a good story." Now we are distributed in 16 states including Canada. Our production averages 9,500 cases per year among all varietals.
