PRODUCER

Fisher Vineyards

Fisher Vineyards was founded in 1973 when Fred and Juelle Fisher bought 100 acres in the Mayacamas Mountains in Sonoma County. They later added 57 acres on the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley. Both had backgrounds in business -- Fred was with General Motors and Juelle was an investment analyst -- before starting the winery. Today the winery is still owned and operated by the family, which includes three adult children who are part of the management team. The estate's first successes were with Chardonnay, then they started making Cabernet Sauvignon from purchased grapes. Now the estate includes many acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, as well as Chardonnay and Merlot. The estate's signature Cabs are the Coach Insignia, Lamb Vineyard and Wedding Vineyard bottlings.
