Dating back to the 1870s, Larkmead Vineyards is one of Napa Valley’s most historic estates and has been owned by the Solari/Baker family since 1948. Recognized as one of the most exceptional vineyard sites of the region, the 150-acre valley floor parcel is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller plantings of Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc as well as a tiny pre-prohibition block of Tocai Friulano. All Larkmead wine is sourced entirely from the estate vineyard and Larkmead also grows and sells fruit for several of Napa Valley’s most prestigious producers.
The winery and tasting room is located between St. Helena and Calistoga and is open to visitors by appointment.
