Vineyard 29

About Vineyard 29

What to do when you find the land you purchased for retirement is, in fact, perfectly suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon...in Napa? Plant a vineyard and start a new career. Teresa Norton and Tom Paine did just that in 1989, planting 3 acres under the direction of legendary vineyard manager David Abreu. In 1992 the first vintage was released - 250 cases of estate Cabernet. Philippe Melka became winemaker in 1999, and soon after Teresa and Tom decided to really retire. They sold Vineyard 29 to Churck and Anne McMinn. A new winery was built, caves were dug, and production increased with the purchase of a second vineyard, Aida, planted to Cabernet, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. From these two vineyards, the estate wines are produced: Vineyard 29 Cabernet Sauvignon, Vineyard 29 Sauvignon Blanc, Aida Red Wine, and Aida Zinfandel.
