Glennhawk Vineyards is a labor of love for our family. We planted our vineyard on the hill below our home in 2004 with the idea that we wanted to grow high quality grapes and produce great tasting wine for our family, neighbors, and friends. We harvested our first vintage in 2007 and hired Kevin Vecchiarelli, a well-known winemaker in the Napa Valley, to make the wine for us. It was a pleasant surprise to see how enjoyable the 2007 and 2008 wines tasted. Numerous people who tasted the wine then asked if they could purchase some. Because of this overwhelmingly positive response, we made the decision to plunge head first into turning Glennhawk Vineyards into a real business, beginning with our 2009 harvest.
We use only holistic farming practices on our vineyard and do not use herbicides or pesticides. And yes, that means you will often see me or my family pulling weeds between the rows by hand.
Our mission is to make the best tasting and most balanced wines possible from our vineyard. Our paramount goal is for consumers to relish and appreciate the unique flavors and elegance of our wines.
