Since the 1880’s, Murrieta’s Well is considered one of Livermore, Valley California’s original wine estates. Our vineyard was started with cuttings from the famed Chateau d’Yquem and Chateau Margaux vineyards in France; today it continues to produce the highest quality fruit.
The Livermore Valley has a unique east to west orientation. The warm days of the Livermore Valley are tempered by the marine influence, of the San Francisco Bay, providing cool foggy mornings and lower evening temperatures. This climatic variation allows the fruit to develop and ripen while maintaining its natural acidity.
Our estate consists of multiple unique soil types ranging in elevation from 560’ to 860. The diversity in terroir gives us the opportunity to plant varietals that thrive in specific locations throughout the estate. Over the last 130 years, we have used our experience in farming our estate to produce the highest quality wine that showcase a true expression of our estate.
