the mid 1970s when Gary and Nancy Andrus first visited a dusty trail leading to
a small frame farmhouse surrounded by a ridge of hillsides worn with cattle paths,
they knew this would be the new home for Pine Ridge Winery. Of course, in this
treasure was one of the oldest chardonnay vineyards in Napa Valley in addition
to the soils of Stags Leap District known as one of world's best sites for growing
With seed money from the sale
of the Copper Mountain ski resort in Colorado, Gary and Nancy purchased 50 acres
in the Stags Leap District.
The first crush in 1978 yielded 4,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon. We now produce
and bottle more than 80,000 cases of premium estate wines annually.
You'll still find remnants of the old farmhouse in our Tasting Room. A worn stone
wall was the original foundation for the cellars used around the early 1900s when
the Luigi Domiconi family farmed and produced wine.
