Barbour Vineyards is in St. Helena, Napa Valley. It was founded in 1995 by Jim Barbour, a Napa Valley native who was raised on a Rutherford ranch. Barbour became a grower of premium grapes for such producers as Grace Family, Pride, Blankiet and others. In 1992 he planted his own vineyard and his first vintage of 50 cases was in 1995. Heidi Barrett made Barbour’s wine from 1995-2008. Today Celia Welch is winemaker. Barbour makes Cabernet Sauvignon which is sold primarily through mailing lists.
