About the Wine

It began when Italian immigrants John and Emma Salvestrin fell in love with St. Helena while visiting friends in the early 1920s. In 1932 they purchased a portion of the historic Crane Ranch, including the Victorian home of Dr. Crane. With the repeal of prohibition in 1933, they started selling grapes as the wine industry began to grown again.

Ed Salvestrin, who grew up on the family vineyard, continued to grow quality grapes through the 60s, 70s, and 80s preserving the family legacy for future generations. He still lives on the site and frequently tends to his fruit trees when he's not helping out in the vineyard.

In 1987, Rich Salvestrin completed his degree in viticulture from Fresno State University. He returned to the family vineyard to help farm and also to expand the family's grape growing business to include winemaking. 1994 was the inaugural vintage of Salvestrin Cabernet Sauvignon and in 2001 the estate winery was constructed amongst the family vines.

Today, the fourth generation Salvestrin girls are growing up on the family vineyard.
