Founder’s Ranch Vineyard
Planted in 1976, the Founder’s Ranch vineyard is a unique estate positioned at the southern edge of St. Helena on gravelly alluvial fan soils with excellent drainage. Producing rich, bold wines with fine-grained tannins, the vineyard is an expression of one of the most prestigious and high-quality terroirs within Napa Valley. Currently undergoing certification to become Certified Napa Green, Organic and Biodynamic, the vineyard is planted to 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
