Hewitt VINEYARDS

By the late 1800s, Rutherford was already well-known for its high-quality wine grapes. The spot that was to become Hewitt Vineyard first came under vine in 1880, when Dennis Hanrahan planted the parcel bordering Gustave Niebaum’s Inglenook (now Rubicon Estate). In 1900 the region welcomed another winemaking pioneer when French emigrant Georges de Latour purchased land adjacent to Hanrahan and Niebaum and planted the first vines for Beaulieu Vineyard.

The Hanrahan Ranch later passed to Hanrahan’s daughter Julie and her husband, Joseph Gagetta, who made wine prior to Prohibition. During Prohibition, the Gagettas kept the vineyard viable by shipping grapes east to home winemakers. 

William A. Hewitt, head of Deere & Company (John Deere) from 1955 to 1982, bought the vineyard in 1962. He enlisted the assistance of Beaulieu’s famed winemaker André Tchelistcheff in replanting the site to 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.

 

追溯到19世纪末,纳帕卢瑟福产区的优质葡萄酒就已很有名了。 1880年,Dennis Hanrahan先生买了一块地,与Gustave Niebaum的Inglenook(现为Rubicon Estate)接壤,首次种植葡萄,这就是今天的Hewitt Vineyard始祖。 1900年,该地区迎来了另一位葡萄酒酿造先驱。当时,法国移民Georges de Latour 也在 Hanrahan和Niebaum庄园附近也购买了土地,并为BV (Beaulieu Vineyard) 葡萄园种植了第一批葡萄。 Hanrahan Ranch后来传给 Hanrahan的女儿Julie和她的丈夫Joseph Gagetta。在禁酒期间,Gagettas通过将葡萄运往东部的葡萄酒酿造商来维持葡萄园生济。  Deere&Company(John Deere)的负责人William A. Hewitt于1962年购买了该葡萄园。他获得了Beaulieu著名酿酒师AndréTchelistcheff的帮助,将该地点重新种植了赤霞珠(Cabernet Sauvignon)。多年来,休伊特葡萄园的葡萄是卢瑟福许多优质葡萄酒的重要组成部分。  Hewitt葡萄园首次以Hewitt Vineyard 为品牌销售葡萄酒则是开始于2001年。今天,Hewitt Vineyard纯单酿赤霞珠已是纳帕葡萄酒中响当当的名号。
