Larkmead Vineyards was established back in 1895 but has been owned by Cam Baker and Kate Solari since 1948. Larkmead is one of the oldest, family-owned grape-growing estates in the Napa Valley. The estate is composed of 150 acres with a focus on old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and the rare Italian variety of Tocai Friulano. The true character of Larkmead and its unique wines are a direct result of the topography, climate, and the exceptional geology of the soils. Our inventory has a variety of vintages to stock up on or to enjoy now, perfect for celebrating Larkmeads' 125th anniversary!
