In the early 1870's, Swiss immigrant Charles Volper acquired a 143 acre parcel along a lovely stream, which flowed down the center of Conn Valley, an eastern spur of the Napa Valley. He planted grapevines on the south facing hillsides, and purchased dairy cattle, which he grazed in the pasture below. He had a handsome stone dairy barn constructed in 1881, the same year he added stone retaining walls in support of the bridge across Conn Creek. Charles Volper subsequently entered into a partnership with Georges Crochat, a French immigrant, which they called the Franco-Swiss Farming Company. They built a wooden winery in Volper's large front pasture which borders his entrance trail from Conn Valley Road. Later when the winery burned down they built a stone winery and distillery building on the other side of Volper's entrance trail. When both partners died in 1892, Volper's estate sold his 143 acre parcel to new owners, and it served as a horse and cattle ranch until 1979, when the original Volper 143 acre Read more »

  • Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004


    Ripe, vivid aromatics of currant, florals and hazelnut-scented oak. Sleek yet muscular package with rich intense tannins all in balance. Sweet fruit and oak on the nose, nearly pinot scented. Great structure and balance between bold tannin and extremely ripe fruit.- Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/24/10 Read More
