About Us
  • About Us

    Raymond Vineyards, founded in 1970, is one of Napa Valley's pioneers and great estates. Arriving to Napa in 1933, the Raymond family became deeply connected to the valley's winemaking origins. In 1970, they established a 90-acre estate in Rutherford that now comprises 300 acres in Rutherford, St. Helena and Jameson Canyon. Five generations of the Raymond family created a Napa icon, with an enduring reputation for elegant wines with a beautiful balance of finesse, power and complexity.

Our Story

Origins

Raymond Vineyards traces its family roots to the origins of winemaking in America's most fabled wine region. Embodying the spirit of the "Old Napa Valley", the Raymond family worked side-by-side to build their winery from the ground-up. After arriving in the Napa Valley in 1933, marrying Martha Jane Beringer in 1936, and enjoying more than thirty-five years working in every facet of Beringer Winery, in 1970 Roy Raymond Sr., together with his sons Walter and Roy Jr., decided that it was their time to put their family name on the deep roots they'd laid in the Napa Valley.

First Crush

Their first vintage crush in 1974 was emblematic of the early Napa Valley harvests: the family worked together side-by-side caring for every facet of the winery - hospitality to farming, fermentation, bottling and sales.

Deep Roots

The family quickly earned acclaim for their elegant wines with a beautiful balance of finesse, power and complexity. Five generations of the Raymond family imbued the winery with a sense of its deep roots in the Napa Valley and a commitment to honor those roots, the estate and the family tradition through every wine produced.

In 2009, Raymond Vineyards became a part of the Boisset Family Estates collection of wineries. Each house within the Boisset collection boasts a unique history, identity, style, personality, and terroir focus. Many, like Raymond, were built on the strength of long family histories. Now, once again family-owned (Japanese brewer Kirin had purchased the winery in 1989), the Raymond winery is undergoing an exciting evolution with a commitment to enhancing the winery's reputation as one of Napa's pioneering premier producers.
