Lewelling Vineyards

Lewelling Vineyards The vineyards of the historic Lewelling estate were established in 1864 near the western foothills in St. Helena by pioneer winegrower and horticulturist John Lewelling. Janice Lewelling Wight, John Lewelling's great-granddaughter, and her husband Russ, together with their three sons, Alan, Doug and Dave, operate a 28-acre vineyard on a portion of the original estate, one of the oldest continuously-owned family vineyards in the Napa Valley. During the 1870's and 1880's, the vineyards of the St. Helena area established a reputation for producing some of the finest wines in the United States, a reputation that is now acknowledged world-wide and is attributed to the unique combination of soils and climate found here. Over the years Lewelling Vineyards has consistently harvested exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes that have been sold to such fine Napa Valley wineries as Caymus, Galleron, Markham, Viader and Beaulieu Vineyards. With encouragement and assistance from some of these producers, the Wight family began production in 1992 of their own vineyard-designated wine.
