Welcome to Seavey Vineyard
In 1979, William and Mary Seavey purchased the historic estate originally founded by the Franco-Swiss Farming Company in 1881. One century after the first vines were planted, Seavey Vineyard was established. Once again, the land would be groomed to grow world-class wines, not to satisfy modern trends, but to honor age-old winemaking traditions. The Seavey Vineyard Wine Library maintains wine from each vintage produced on this land and provides close friends of the winery a chance to taste back through twenty-five years of Cabernet Sauvignon.

"There are no shortcuts in the vineyard. Our wine's best friend is time, with patience being a gift you give to yourself."
