A look back into our past

In 2001, we found the perfect location for our home and farm in the historic Covenant community of Rancho Santa Fe, California. By the time construction started in 2003, we had discovered that a portion of the land was an amazing site for a vineyard. After some friendly family negotiations, we made the decision to forego an additional horse pasture and start a vineyard. In April 2005, we planted a Bordeaux blend of certified French clone vines and so began our trail in the wine industry. After seven years of fine-tuning our farming and winemaking practices, we were ready to showcase the wine we think is deserving of its namesake.
