Our Story Our Journey to creating the best Estate wines

Sitting south of Stags Leap, in the foothills west of Atlas Peak, we discovered the perfect 14 acre parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon. We realized that by maximizing the potential of this great site, we could build our Estate brand. As we learned about this vineyard, and discovered it’s many nuances, we found through initial tastings that there was great potential to produce a wine we would be proud to have carry the “Estate” label.

Today, the vineyard is the basis for our four distinct wines. Lance Ellman and Neil Ellman work closely with Winemaker Andy Erickson, and Vineyard Manager Mike Wolf. We invite you to share in the beginning of what will prove to be an exciting journey for Ellman Family Vineyards.
