A brief history
Oakville Winery was first established in November 1877 as Brun & Chaix, Oakville Winery. It was the 9th bonded winery in California. In 1993 when we purchased the winery and surrounding vineyards, it was sold to us as The Oakville Winery. Our Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are planted adjacent to the winery, the essence of an estate definition in the very center of the Oakville appellation.; Our family has owned vineyards in Napa Valley since 1903. We strive to produce wines that represent our land and its heritage. The Bonded Winery #9 Portfolio always represents Napa Valley´s best quality at reasonable prices. The "new" Oakville Winery will produce wines from the same vineyards and the same location as the founding winery, thus continuing a 132 year old tradition. In a real sense, the name Oakville Winery was chosen for us from the beginning. The Oakville appellation is precious to all of us who share this region's bounty.
