In 1970, Bill Godward came across a tranquil, idyllic ten-acre parcel on a gentle downslope on the Rutherford Bench, its old vineyard planted to Carignan and Syrah. The current vineyard was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 2002 and has consistently produced premium fruit. Bill passed away in 2019 at the age of 105, leaving the vineyard to his daughter, Jennifer Trainor, and her family. The family is dedicated to continuing Bill’s stewardship.
