Lavili Vineyards

Lavili Vineyards Born and raised in Sweden, in a family of wine lovers, Viveka grew up amidst wine tastings and wine musings during countless trips throughout Europe. When Lars, a Northern California native, visited his parents' homeland (Sweden) in 1989, he promptly fell for the aplomp with which Viveka made her own Quiche, and paired it perfectly with an Alsatian Riesling. Having found a shared passion, they were soon plotting how to own their own vineyard. Viveka, never faint of heart, accepted Lars's invitation, and moved to California. After years of combining hiking trips with evermore sophisticated wine tastings, and having fallen in love with the unique beauty and wines of this area, we bought this property in 2000. While still working in San Francisco, we used every weekend and vacation to plant the roughly 4-acres of plantable land (and Lars single-handedly remodelled our house). In 2004, we moved up here full-time with our three children. All vineyard operations and wine making is handled by our family. And our name, LAVILI, is derived from the first two letters of some of our names: LArs, VIveka, LInus and LInnea. Our Estate Hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is named after our son Pontus -- a big Cab deserving a big name.
