Sitting south of Stags Leap in the foothills west of Atlas Peak, the Ellman family discovered a perfect 14-acre parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon. They realized that by maximizing the potential of this great site, they could build their Estate brand. As they learned about this vineyard and discovered its many nuances, they found that there was great promise in producing a wine they would be proud to have carry The Estate label.
Today, all of Ellman's wines come from the estate's own vineyard. The family works closely with Winemaker Andy Erickson and Vineyard Manager Mike Wolf. They invite you to share in the beginning of what will prove to be an exciting journey for Ellman Family Vineyards.
