Over a century of grape growing and wine production hints at the amazing history that has transpired on our ranch. From its days as part of Rancho Caymus in the early 1800s, through the wine production period of the late nineteenth century, and then as source of high quality Zinfandel through the twentieth century, The Terraces has been at the heart of the history of Napa Valley
The Terraces Winery was created 30 years ago to take advantage of the remarkable Zinfandel grown on the steep terraced hillsides. With the additional plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, the winery released its first wine in 1985. Today, visitors to The Terraces have the opportunity look back at much of what 130 years of history has left behind, the rock quarry, the ghost winery, ancient terraces and old orchards.
Our history and that which came before us creates a sense of place and a sense of responsibility to the land and the story.
