of Angier Vineyards begins with my great grandfather Melbourne
In the late 1800's Melbourne settled in Northern California. He
found the climate, much like that of his native France, ideal
for wine grape production. He dedicated himself to the farming
of fine wine grapes. In the early days he rented 40 acres of land
but by the turn of the century he owned over 500 acres and had
established himself as one of the first commercial vinters in
My great grandmother, Antoinette Angier once fed as many as 50
farm hands in a single kitchen. Today Angier Vineyards is operated
on a smaller scale. Where my great grandfather cultivated the
land with horse and plow we now use a single tractor.
At Angier Vineyards we pay tribute to our family history of fine
winemaking. Our wine is produced in small, limited lots from our
hillside vineyard in Knights Valley, CA.
