The first planting on what is now the J. Davies Estate Vineyard was in 1862 by Jacob Schram, representing the Napa Valley’s first hillside vineyard. This and the J. Davies Estate McEachran Vineyard are the southern most vineyards in the Diamond Mountain District AVA. Flanked by two cool creek canyons, Nash Creek to the north and Ritchie Creek to the south, and surrounded by dense coniferous and deciduous forests, these vines produce late-ripening, richly-concentrated fruit.
Schramsberg’s history dates back to the 19th century, when German immigrant Jacob Schram first made his home and started his winery on Diamond Mountain.
Over one hundred years later Jack and Jamie Davies would restore the Schramsberg estate in 1965. They set out to produce sparkling wine – specifically, “America’s most prestigious, select and admired sparkling wine; chosen for special guests, special gifts, pampering one’s self and expressing one’s taste in unique products.” Through the decades, this spirit of innovation earned Schramsberg and the Davies worldwide praise and recognition.
