In 1962 sweeping views of the Napa Valley charmed our grandfather, Caspar Escher, into purchasing land in the Mayacamas Mountain range high above the Rutherford Bench. Together with our grandmother, Virginia Crowley Escher, he created a rustic getaway from their city lives in San Francisco. “Pops” raised cattle, rabbits, chickens and horses and “Vee” oversaw the fruit trees, herbs and vegetable gardens. As kids, we rode on Pops’ tractor, helped farm, fix things, and explored the property. Other days we’d clear trails, hunt for mushrooms and when lucky find obsidian arrowheads.
The passing of our grandfather inspired us to preserve his legacy. We rekindled our dormant grove of century-old Mission olive trees and enriched the land with fruit trees, a garden, bee hives and an idyllic vineyard. Atop those rocky hillside soils, we organically farm 13 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot vines.
We are blessed with the rich terroir to produce Cabernet Sauvignon, extra virgin olive oil and wildflower honey from our estate. Every harvest we experience the humble purity of our family’s land. It is our pleasure to invite you to share it with us.
From our family to yours,
