Davis Estates was founded with the purchase of a 155 acre property in 2011 by Mike and Sandy Davis. The original winery dated back to 1900 (burned down in 1946). The property has changed significantly since the Davis Family took over ownership and is currently still being developed with a completion of the various winery projects estimated to be in early 2016. This ambitious project of restoring the historic barn, developing the hospitality center, cave, offices and winery is certainly not a typical retirement project! Eleven acres of vines are planted on site – mostly to Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller blocks of Petite Sirah and Cabernet Franc. Mike owns additional land on Howell Mountain, in the Carneros (source of their Chardonnay) and a small piece of producing vineyard land in Rutherford. Davis Estates is the culmination of a life long dream. Here the vision is carved from this historic site as an estate winery focused on wines of the highest pedigree.
