A brief history

Provenance Vineyards is located in Rutherford, CA, producing its first Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon in 1999 and since priding itself on producing some of the top Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc in Napa Valley.

The concept of “Provenance” (French for "origin" or "source") reflects the winery's dedication to seeking out the finest vineyard sources in Napa Valley and crafting wines that express their distinctive origin. It also has strong meaning in the art world as the record of a work's ownership and guarantee of authenticity.

In fact, the winery was founded with the goal of producing fine wines with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot that are authentic works of art.

As our name suggests, the pedigree of Provenance wines is of utmost importance. We go straight to the source for the highest quality fruit in the Napa Valley, forging enduring relationships with the region’s top winegrape producers. Senior Winemaker Trevor Durling is a purist, relying on the finest winemaking traditions to extract elegant, powerful wines that express their premium vineyard origins rather than the winemakers’ intervention.

Meet The Team

  • David Galzignato

    Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, David was the first member of his Italian-American family to attend college, enrolling at the University of California, Davis, where he earned degrees in Viticulture & Enology as well as Italian in 1998. He discovered winemaking after some persuasion by a fellow schoolmate to take an Introduction to Winemaking course and recalls the experience as being “very difficult but also challenging and fascinating. It was truly the right place at the right time.” Before graduation, the Hayward native worked in Barbaresco and Casteggio, Italy to gain in-the-field cellar experience and fell in love with the old-world style of craftsmanship, before returning to the US to work as a protégé under respected winemaker Ray Einberger in Washington State. Einberger, having trained at the storied Bordeaux houses of Château Mouton-Rothschild and Château Clerc Milon, instilled in David a rigorous and detail-oriented approach to winemaking, leaving a long-term, profound impression on him.
