THE ALLURE OF ACKERMAN: Curated Experience. World Class Wines. Historical Beauty.
When purchasing our vineyard in Coombsville back in 1994, we were inspired by the legendary names and world class wines that the Napa Valley had become renowned for. Back then, Coombsville was an unknown corner of Napa, but had been consistently producing beautiful wines that echoed the flavor and style of Bordeaux for decades. Slowly, patiently, this southeastern corner of the Napa Valley came into its own over the years until it made its world debut as the 16th AVA within the Napa Valley in 2011. We knew, back in those early days, that the luscious, deep berry flavors, with leather, coco, spice and earthy notes that typically characterized Coombsville wines, would resonate with wine enthusiasts and collectors.
Here at Ackerman Family Vineyards, we value wines that are rooted in tradition, but made in the spirit of today. In 2007, we released our first commercial vintage — our 2003 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. About it, Master of Wine Peter Marks’ has said, "…consider yourself fortunate if you still have this in your cellar."
From the beginning, all of our actions in the vineyard have been purposeful. We began sustainable farming in 2003, and by 2009 we earned our California Certified Organic Farm (CCOF) label – the first to do so within the Coombsville appellation. To us, it’s a testament to our patience, time and commitment – striving for excellence is a never-ending goal.
Today, our passion for producing wines that are enjoyable, memorable and approachable, is what we have become known for. Our vision, which began with the inspiration of creating wines of distinction that elevate and reflect our terroir, has now grown to include world-class hospitality, unique events, and historical encounters through the addition of the Ackerman Heritage House, our one-of-a-kind, 1889 Victorian mansion that ties together our wine philosophy with authentic experiences. Similar to the Coombsville AVA, Ackerman Family Vineyards has stepped onto the stage to take our place as a distinctive part of the legendary Napa Valley.
