The family owned and operated AETNA SPRINGS CELLARS is a small vineyard/winery run by the extended Kimsey-Watson families. Three generations work together to make it a success. During the busiest times of the year, it is not unusual to see 16-year-old Caroline operating a foil machine alongside her 87-year-old grandfather, Jim. We produce ultra-premium wine in small quantities to delight those in search of rare and unique fine wines. Our Chardonnay and Merlot grapes come from the vineyard owned by the grandparents, Jim and Margaret Ann Watson. Their vineyard is located in the historic "Rutherford" appellation district in the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley. Grapes from their 'Hoatzin' [pronounced Watson], Vineyard had 10 years renown for producing award winning wines before AETNA SPRINGS CELLARS began in the late 1980's. Sally Kimsey, who practices veterinary medicine as 'Sally the Valley Vet,' is the Watsons's daughter. Her husband, Paul, a micro-biologist, is our winemaker, with strong support from his brother, Rob, who is a medical entomologist, and his sister-in-law, Lynn, a systematist, both at U. C. Davis. This team of wine connoisseur-scientists grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah grapes on our Aetna Springs ranch, and, under the AETNA SPRINGS CELLARS label, produces wines of exceptional quality and value.
