Long Meadow Ranch
First settled in the late 1800s and abandoned during Prohibition, Long Meadow Ranch, located in the Mayacamas Mountains high above Rutherford, was revitalized in 1989 by proprietors Ted, Laddie and Chris Hall, who set out to produce world-class wine using sustainable, organic farming practices.
Focused on food-friendly wines, Long Meadow Ranch continues a proud legacy of crafting elegant, balanced wines and handcrafted extra virgin olive oils utilizing “full-circle farming” methods.
We have built an integrated, organic farming system, certified by Californai Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), that is centered around grape growing and winemaking, estate-grown olive oils, fruit & vegetable production, hand-tended bee hives, a large herd of grass-fed Highland cattle, and a flock of Hampshire-Suffolk crossbred sheep. We now have multiple locations in our consistently-managed, integrated organic farming system.
At our original 650-acre Mayacamas Estate winery and caves, we cultivate 16 acres of mountain vineyards, produce estate-grown wine and premium olive oils, raise grass-fed Highland cattle, and tend to -- as well as harvest from -- the oldest olive orchards in the Napa Valley.
Our Rutherford Estate rests on 90 acres of "Rutherford dust" benchland dedicated to organic grapegrowing, fruit and vegetable production, hand-tended beehives, and our growing flock of egg-laying poultry.
Our Anderson Valley Estate is located in the west or “deep end” of the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County and features 70-planted acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris vineyards. With the Navarro River to the southeast and close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the terroir is ideal for the estate-grown Burgundian varietals to mature slowly and ripen to the peak of their varietal character.
At our Tomales Station in Marin County, along Keyes Creek at the edge of Tomales Bay, we grow potatoes and raise grass-fed beef and lamb on the historic Cerini Ranch, once served by a narrow guage railroad.
Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch is our destination for extraordinary food and wine experiences in St. Helena, the heart of Napa Valley. Our estate-grown wines, organic produce, grass-fed beef and lamb, extra virgin olive oil, Orleans Method red wine vinegar, grappa, honey, and more, are proudly incorporated into the seasonal, ingredient-driven American farmhouse cooking of Executive Chef Stephen Barber.
Each day we welcome guests at our General Store to taste and shop for artisanal goods and LMR provisions, to join wine-buying excursions to our estates, to bring home what is in season from our farmer's market, and to enjoy unique culinary and wine tasting experiences. Please join us.
