About Us

First planted to wine grapes in 1882, Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery was established by the Novak family in 1982. Now stewarded by second generation sisters, Beth Novak Milliken and Lindy Novak, Spottswoode crafts an elegant, balanced and age-worthy Cabernet that captures the character of the vintage and the complexity of the legendary estate vineyard. Spottswoode has been noted as “one of Napa Valley’s First-Growth wines and vineyards.”

Situated on the western edge of St. Helena, at the foot of the Mayacamas Mountains, Spottswoode is located on the northernmost part of the Napa Valley bench. The vineyard consists of 33 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, with the remaining plantings made up of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc. The 37-acre estate is hand-farmed as a mosaic of 24 different blocks, 18 of which are Cabernet Sauvignon, offering varying combinations of clone, vine age and rootstock. As one of the pioneers of organic viticulture in California, we have farmed without the use of synthetic chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers since 1985, and were one of the very first vineyards in Napa Valley to receive organic certification by the CCOF in 1992. In addition, Spottswoode is both Napa Green Winery and Vineyard certified and 100% solar run.
