Knights Bridge Estate Vineyard
The Knights Bridge vineyard is located on the southern boundary of the stunning Knights Valley AVA of Sonoma County. Rising from 300 to 900 feet in elevation on the rocky slopes of the Mayacamas mountain range north of Calistoga, Knights Bridge Vineyard overlooks a spectacular display of rolling hills, steep mountains and gentle valleys. Cool wind from the Pacific blows through the gap in these mountains, providing the grapes with longer hang time to develop richer flavors. Blessed with a combination of iron-rich and white-ash tufa (calcium carbonate) soils, the terroir of Knights Bridge, combining the perfect blend of climate and location, provides an ideal environment for the chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and sauvignon blanc vines to thrive. Taking a sustainable approach, these carefully farmed hillsides share open space with wildlife habitats and riparian corridors, helping preserve nature's delicate balance.
Serendip Vineyard is 6 acres of beautiful valley floor vineyard land directly adjacent to the Knights Bridge Vineyards. The well drained soils have given us the perfect spot to grow Chardonnay and Merlot for the Knights Bridge Winery wine program.
To Kalon Vineyard
Arguably the Grand Cru of California vineyards, the Beckstoffer portion of the historic original To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville AVA was purchased from Beaulieu Vineyard in 1993. Beaulieu had purchased the property from the Crabb estate in 1940 and called it their Beaulieu Vineyard No. 4. Napa Pioneer Hamilton Crabb first planted the vineyard in 1868 and it has produced some of the Napa Valley's best red grapes ever since. Replanted by Beckstoffer beginning in 1994 to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with modern trellising and closer vine spacing, this vineyard produces elegant wines that are world-renowned.
Dr. Crane Vineyard
Napa pioneer Dr. George Beldon Crane originally planted one of the top vineyards in California, Beckstoffer’s Dr. Crane Vineyard in 1858. This historic vineyard property is located west of Route 29 in the city of St. Helena, within the St. Helena Appellation. The gravelly loam soils have been replanted (1998) to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The wines from this vineyard are rich, intense, and have a depth of black fruit flavors that are unmatched.
