Truly a family dedication beginning with clearing the forest from their mountain estate to plant the vineyards, to making the wine and visiting guests to their home estate. The Schweigers define the word hospitality.
In 1979 Bill and Mary Seavey bought their estate vineyards where the steep rocky hillsides produce small, thick-skinned berries with outstanding tannins that they handle with the utmost care. The result is their small production of soulful wines that express the hillside vineyards and their unique sense of place.
A state of the art winery, Shadybrook Estate has not only phenomenal boutique wine and beautiful views of the rolling hills, but is also an elegant horse ranch. Shadybrook produces small batch Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Pinot Noir from estate vineyards. Tastings are privately hosted and can include a cheese and charcuterie pairing or even a horseback ride! Truly unique, Shadybrook is a tucked away gem in a quiet corner of Napa Valley.
