Grand Napa Vineyards, located beside Highway 29 in Rutherford, California, has a storied history dating back to the 1800’s. In 1838, when California was still part of Mexico, 11,814 acres from the Caymus Rancho were granted to explorer George Yount by General Mariano G. Vallejo. A cowboys’ bunkhouse built in 1888 still stands here, and nearby Yount planted Napa’s first grape vines. The owners in the early 1900’s, left a colorful mark on the property, painting their stucco house in their favorite color, pink. This is now where the hand-crafted Stone Crib is located on the property. Notably, our estate shares the neighborhood with some of the most esteemed wineries in the world. A unique feature is that if you happen to take the Napa Valley Wine Train, you can wave hello to our charming estate along your journey through Napa.

In 1999, our vineyards were re-planted with primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (Davis Clone 6 and Clone 337) and Cabernet Franc (Clone 336). We introduced our Stone Crib estate wine paying tribute to the estate’s rich history. Each bottle we produce carries not only the flavors and aromas of the vineyard but also the spirit of a shared vision for wines of unparalleled excellence.

As a family-owned and operated winery, we take immense pride in our heritage and legacy. Our commitment to producing high-quality wines is a labor of love that has been passed down through generations. In addition to our own, we work with the farmers the finest grapes from the best vineyards in Napa Valley, ensuring that every sip of our wine is a testament to the artistry and dedication that goes into crafting it. Here’s to the love of wine, the love of family, and the love of sharing something truly special with you.
