A brief history

Sequoia Grove is a family-owned winery founded in 1979 in a 110-year old barn beneath a grove of Sequoia trees in Rutherford, Napa Valley. It is here where we’ve honed our craft of creating world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and other Napa Valley wines that emphasize elegance, finesse, structure and balance. Our consistent philosophy of making wines with varietal character that are reflective of the land helped establish Sequoia Grove as one of the premier Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Napa Valley. Our 24-acre Estate Vineyard and 50-acre Tonella Ranch Vineyard are both located in the heart of Rutherford, where the superb climate and gravelly-loam soils impart distinct flavor in the Bordeaux varieties.

Meet The Team

  • Molly Hill

    Molly Hill oversees all winemaking and production operations for Sequoia Grove, as well as helping with grower relations and recommendations in the vineyards. Her goal every step of the way is top-quality winemaking and grape growing. For Molly, balance is of utmost importance in making a great wine. “Balance to me means nothing stands out—not alcohol, not tannin, not acid, nor fruit nor barrel.”

    Although Molly joined Sequoia Grove at the young age of 24, she came with experience from quite a few wineries, large and small. During her studies in the UC Davis Viticulture and Enology program, Molly learned the ropes at Beringer Wine Estates and later making Pinot Noir at Domaine Carneros. Upon graduation, she sharpened her skills and winemaking intuition first at Sea Smoke Cellars and then at Viña Isidro in Chile. She joined Sequoia Grove in 2003 as Assistant Winemaker and was promoted to Winemaker in 2008. Each vintage since has seen more critical acclaim, and Hill is quick to credit the success to the dedication of her team.
