Meet the Producer

Lawer Estates is a family-owned, limited production winery known for sustainably grown, terroir driven wines produced in Calistoga - the northern end of the Napa Valley.

The vineyards have the ideal terroir and microclimates to nurture a diverse range of varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, Viognier and Petite Syrah. On summer days, coastal breezes make their way through the gap in the hills and up the creek that meanders through the vineyards.  Complementing this ideal microclimate is a subterranean volcanic reservoir that nurtures the vines year-round, and provides essential hydration even in times of drought.
