Bernard Ehlers originally founded this winery in 1886, and today it is owned by the Jean and Sylviane Leducq Foundation after it was purchased in 2001 by the Leducq’s. It is located about 2 miles north of St. Helena on the east side of Hwy 29 and down Ehlers Lane. The beautiful picturesque location is the perfect place to take photos while being in a historic setting. The original winery press from the 1880’s is on full display for visitors and provides a unique perspective of the evolution of the wine industry. They are known for their premium red wines and you will experience a delightful tasting in their elegant stone old winery building or in the main winery room.
