After almost 30 years as a Builder and Developer in the Bay Area, Steve Sherwin was ready to make a lifestyle change. He and his wife, Linda, were looking for a quieter, more relaxed setting to raise their three children. Steve’s buddy, a fifth generation grape grower in Napa Valley, suggested that they look for property in Napa Valley and grow grapes. His buddy assured him that, although farming is a lot of hard work, it was not nearly as stressful as building and developing.
In 1996, the Sherwins purchased 30 acres at the top of Spring Mountain and began their Wine Country adventure. In late 1999, Sherwin Family Vineyards released their first wine, a 1996 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
Since then, the Sherwins have been hosting wine lovers at their beautiful tasting room overlooking the Estate’s vineyards and lake. And enjoying the peaceful beauty of life on Spring Mountain.
It turns out that Steve’s Buddy was right. Steve says it was one of the best decisions he’s ever made.
