About Hewitt Vineyard

Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a single-vineyard wine that highlights the character of our estate without overwhelming it. This vineyard site has a rich history of being a component of celebrated wines for more than a half-century.

Read More

Today Hewitt Vineyard is renowned as a single vineyard wine; the first such bottling was created in 2000. However, this vineyard site has a rich history of being a component of celebrated wines for more than a half-century.

Dennis Hanrahan first planted the Hewitt Vineyard in 1880. At that time, this parcel bordered Gustave Niebaum’s Inglenook estate, and in 1900 Georges de Latour purchased the adjacent land for his Beaulieu Vineyard. The Hanrahan Ranch passed to daughter Julie and her husband, Joseph Gagetta, who made wine prior to Prohibition and then kept the vineyard viable during Prohibition by shipping grapes east to home winemakers. William Hewitt, who was related to the Deere family by marriage and headed Deere & Company (producers of John Deere farm equipment) from 1955 to 1982, bought the vineyard in 1962. In 1992, he enlisted the assistance of legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff to replant the vineyard to the finest Cabernet Sauvignon. For a number of years, grapes from Hewitt Vineyard were an important component in many great wines from Rutherford. The inaugural 2001 Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was the first single-vineyard wine produced from this historic spot.

JD was great. Very well knowledgeable approach to wine introduction. Went out of his way to ensure a great visit. No pressure to buy however, the way he explained the wine value and where it is going easily had us purchasing additional bottles. A great experience.

We recently had one of the best wine tasting experiences ever in the Hewitt Room. Alonso was fun, friendly and so knowledgeable about the wines and the process. All of the staff, including JayDe, are wonderful. I wish we lived closer so we could visit more often, but are happy they send our wine shipments to our state!

The Hewitt wines were generally good but one was corked and threw off our experience. Linda was very nice and provided some nice library wines to taste. The tasting room was like being in an office, warm and somewhat uncomfortable. Would be much nicer to have a view of the vineyards for such an upscale winery. The initial service was non existent and the other hosts passed us by many times...

My parents and I had SUCH a great time at this winery. As a local to the surrounding area, I have been to multiple wineries and I must say our tour guide, Michael, really made the difference. This has hands-down been my best experience. Michael was very knowledgeable and answered a variety of questions my curious parents asked, and even got into the science of the whole process. Would recommend!

We have been visiting Provenance Vineyards for several years and it has been exciting and wonderful to see how they have grown and developed over the years. This was the first time we booked a reserved tasting. We are very glad we did. Everything was fantastic. We learned so much about the founder and the history of the winery. The tour was great. I would recommend visiting Provenance to everyone.

Provenance wines are very good quality, but go one more step and try Hewitt, it’s spectacular, the aroma, taste and smoothiness of wines take you to the different world. The aoutmosppher was nice, exceptionall experience, thx JD

Provenance Vineyards gives you that sense of a small family winery. They have a very large selection of fine wines (we are members of the Hewitt club, their top of the line). If its slow ask if you can take a quick tour of the barrel room attached to the wine tasting sales office. Also enjoy the patio for lunch overlooking the valley.

High tasting fee for what is offered, charged when you book the reservation. Maybe it was an off day, but save your money for another tasting where you can walk away feeling like that was a great tasting experience whether you buy the wine or not.

I set up the tasting via phone call. Overall, wine was great, host was great, met former wine maker and wife. they were great as well. continued on next section of private messaging....

Reserve NOW! I walked into an opulent slice of Venetian heaven. We were greeted with a crisp and cold Sauvignon Blanc with astringent grapefruit notes up front and a smooth, dry finish on the back of the tongue. I did the cave experience - with barrel tasting. This is so unique to the valley - you can get the wine from THAT barrel! That particular French or American oak (or a mixture).

We didn't realize that the Hewitt Winery was part of the Provenance Winery. Very different wines and the Hewitt wines very much bigger. At $150 per bottle the Cab was about avg to the Napa Valley. The wine itself was expressive and very good. The ++ which is the creme de la creme of the cab barrels is way too pricey at $500 a bottle. I understand wanting a premium but that's a little beyond...
