We are a small producer of premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calistoga AVA. We have three estate-grown vineyards planted in the diverse terrain of our 48-acre property. The wines from these vineyards are crafted by our winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown and perfectly reflect the terroir of the Franz Valley area. Once a private boys school, our sprawling property offers a glimpse into the hard work and dedication we have put forth into Harris Estate Vineyards. The vineyards and wine have become a true way of living for us and we hope to share it with you.
Tucked in the hillsides northwest of downtown Calistoga, Harris Estate Vineyards continues to produce wines of impressive purity and texture. These full-bodied wines have personalities that reflect their mountainside location and ideal grape growing soils. Year after year I am impressed by the quality of grapes grown here, making this one of Napa Valley’s finest up-valley vineyards.

Winery Philosophy: David and Linda proudly stand by their vineyard specific, estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon wines as among the best produced in Napa Valley.
David and Linda Jenkins began their life with wine through twenty year of trips to the wine regions of France, Italy, and California. After years of searching for just the right vineyard property, they finally took the plunge and acquired Harris Estate Vineyards in May of 2014. Novices to the entire business of wine, David and Linda are enthusiastic not only with a quest for knowledge, but a strong desire to seek new horizons and friends.
