The Beaucanon vineyards in Napa produce outstanding grapes that, with the skilled hands of an experienced Bordelaise winemaker, become uncommon wines, expressing the intense fruit quality of California along with the elegance and balance of Bordeaux. Their first winery was built in 1987 just outside of St. Helena. It is an impressive facility producing almost 30,000 cases of wine annually. After seven years at this facility, Louis de Coninck transitioned to the Longwood Ranch vineyard. This historic barn has been fitted with state-of-the-art equipment but only produces a gentle 12,000 cases annually.
