About This Producer


Fantesca Estate & Winery is rich with history, having originally been in the dowry of Caroline Bale when she married Charles Krug in 1860. Even then, the property was recognized as prime mountain vineyard land and the perfect place for a Spring Mountain winery. In 1889, a Cabernet made by Hannah Weinberger, one of the earliest female winemakers, won one of the first awards for a wine from the Napa Valley.

In 2004, Minneapolis natives Susan and Duane Hoff purchased the property on which they founded Fantesca Estate. They teamed up with noted Napa father-son winemaking duo Nils and Kirk Venge to craft their wines. Their 1000-case Spring Mountain District winery released its first wines in the fall of 2005 - the 2002 Fantesca Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2004 Chardonnay from the Los Carneros District. In 2008 Fantesca welcomed veteran winemaker Heidi to their winemaking team.
