' Lawer Estates


Lawer Estates is a family-owned, limited production winery known for sustainably grown, terroir driven wines. More than a decade ago we fell in love with Calistoga and purchased our vineyard property. The special characteristics, terroir and microclimates of our vineyard inspired us to create our one-of-a-kind wines.

The Lawer Estates vineyards have the ideal terroir and microclimates to nurture a diverse range of varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Viognier and Petite Syrah. On summer days, coastal breezes make their way through the gap in the hills and up the creek that meanders through our vineyard. This cooling infuses our wines with unmistakable character. Complementing this ideal microclimate is a subterranean volcanic reservoir that nurtures our vines year-round, and provides essential hydration even in times of drought.

Lawer Estates is a labor of love run by the entire Lawer family alongside our experienced viticulture and winemaking team. We feel blessed to be the stewards of this rare vineyard property and we hope that you enjoy our wines.

Discover Lawer Estates. Bold. Distinctive. Memorable.
