The unique character of Cabernet Sauvignon from Hewitt Vineyard® deserves full expression. Rather than blend it into an ensemble with wines from other vineyards, we let it sing with its own unique voice.
History of Hewitt Vineyard
The site that is now Hewitt Vineyard was first planted to vines in 1880, when Dennis Hanrahan bought the parcel bordering Gustave Niebaum’s Inglenook (now Rubicon Estate). The Hanrahan Ranch survived Prohibition by shipping grapes east to home winemakers. In 1962, William A. Hewitt, head of Deere & Company (John Deere), bought the vineyard and replanted it to Cabernet Sauvignon with the help of famed wine master André Tchelistcheff.
