Beginning with the acquisition of Heitz Cellar in 2018, owner Gaylon Lawrence and CEO and Master Sommelier Carlton McCoy have been committed to acquiring estates and unique vineyards that craft a new narrative in the Napa Valley. Each estate winery honors traditional wine styles and prioritizes innovative farming techniques to create wines that are the purest expression of place. Today LWE is actively expanding, creating an exciting and fast-paced environment. This endeavor creates a sought-after and unique team culture where winemaking and vineyard traditions are honored and the entrepreneurial spirit is celebrated.
The collection includes Heitz Cellar, Burgess, Stony Hill, Brendel, and Ink Grade. Each winery holds a deep legacy of history and tradition, anchored by the past and committed to a sustainable future.
