In 1993, David Jackson purchased a small but exceptional dry-farmed vineyard in northern Calistoga. Shortly after, his son Trent was inspired to join the new family business and build on his father?s dream. Trent produced and bottled his first vintage in his San Francisco garage and then hired consulting winemaker Kirk Venge to lead the way. Locals started to hear about this winery and started buying up the super-limited production of their Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. In 2002, Trent?s sister unhesitatingly jumped on board and put the wines in the hands of San Francisco and New York restaurateurs, much to the pleasure of sommeliers and guests alike.
