Ed & Kim Labry

Proprietors

It all started with a shared love of wine. Ed & Kim Labry’s passion for wine evolved from making wine country their favorite romantic getaway into something more. They eventually they tied the knot surrounded by vineyards, and bathed in the warm Napa Valley sun. As time passed they found a little slice of heaven on Earth; their very own vineyards and estate in the Napa Valley’s iconic Rutherford region.

After acquiring their vineyards, the Labrys’ realized there was still something missing; the gifts of their pristine Rutherford vineyard needed to be shared. As a small family owned winery, they realized their dream; working with a team of veteran wine industry experts to carefully nurture the land, create their first bottlings and bring their vision to life.
