A world apart: Cathiard Vineyard is produced from our family-owned estate situated in both the Rutherford and St. Helena AVA’s at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains, where vintners have cultivated the land for more than a century.
Rooted in a deep connection to the land, Cathiard Vineyard expresses the individuality of this unique terroir and delivers energy from the soul of its earth.
In 1880, two brothers, James and William Rennie said goodbye to their native Scotland and set sail to California with high ambition in Napa Valley. Five years later they had built a stone winery and planted 60 acres of vineyards covering the Rutherford and St. Helena AVAs. The same estate is today owned by the Cathiard family.
Founding Brothers is produced exclusively with estate grapes to capture the energy and singularity of this very special terroir.
In Greek mythology, Ôra or Hora is a group of goddesses representing the change of seasons. The autumn goddess displayed on the label is one of four sculptures found at Cathiard Vineyard, where Hora is produced by the estate’s dedicated team.
Bearing the fruit of autumn’s harvest, Hora embodies the elegance and harmony of our vineyard which spreads through St. Helena and Rutherford.
