A marriage of remarkable soil, and a family’s dedication to the stewardship of that land.

Larkmead Vineyards is one of the oldest family-owned establishments in Napa Valley. Originally founded in 1895, the Larkmead estate is sandwiched between the Mayacamas and the Vaca at one of the narrowest points of the valley with the Napa River running directly through the property. The legendary Beaulieu Vineyards winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff once referred to the property as one of the five greatest estates in the Napa Valley. Today, winemaker Avery Heelan showcases what the exceptional site can do with four wines, tied to the varying soil types on the property, and the radically different wines those plots produce. And hot tip, Larkmead is a special place, and if/when you wander into Napa, it is a terrific visit. Friends from Ohio in town and you’re playing tour guide? Go to Larkmead! It will impress, and you will look impressive. By appointment only…like, duh.
