A brief history
Kelham Vineyards wines reflect the unique character of the soils and localized climate which has made Oakville one of the most acclaimed appellations in the world for Bordeaux varieties. This viticultural treasure at the base of the mayacamas mountain range is perfectly suited to produce ultra premium grapes. Rawson Kelham has farmed this sixty-acre vineyard on Dwyer Road for thirty-five years. The winery, founded in 1998 by Susanna Kelham and her two sons Ron and Hamilton Nicholsen, utilizes these ultra premium grapes to produce world class Cabernets. Controlling the vineyard, harvest, and winemaking allows us to create wines with consistency and quality. We want to make every bottle a memorable experience.
