About the Wine

With over 50 years of grape-growing expertise, the Laird family has cultivated a remarkable 2000 acres in the Napa Valley and an additional 250 acres in Carneros. They say that “each vineyard is a unique tale, and every bottle of Laird wine is a chapter that brings those stories to life.” This is a place where tradition and innovation unite to create wines that are as distinctive as they are delicious.

Since their early beginnings, Laird has been selling 97% of their grapes to renowned producers, reserving a precious 3% to create their own exceptional wines. This approach isn't just about quality control, it's a dedication to showcasing the finest expressions of each vintage.

The roots of the Laird Family Estate trace back to the early 1970s when Ken and Gail Laird embarked on a journey to transform neglected land into thriving vineyards. Their commitment to family values, meticulous farming, and attention to detail have led to the creation of wines that are a testament to the journey, the land, and the people.

Behind every exceptional bottle of wine stands an exceptional winemaker. Hailing from the upper Midwest and driven by a passion for winemaking, Laird's winemaker, Brian Mox brings a unique blend of classic and modern techniques. From the vineyards to the bottle, the goal is simple: wines that are balanced, refined, and a true reflection of their origin.Brian’s expertise includes working in Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and Pine Ridge and with Tony Soter at Etude Wines.
