Producing Around 2000 Cases of Organic Wines Annually
Straddles narrow hilltops of Yorkville Highlands, beautiful Le Vin Winery is located, covering an area of 164 acres in Mendocino County, United States. Surrounded by oaks dots, vineyards, and olive groves, the company produces award-winning wines from the traditionally and organically grown grapes, mostly Bordeaux varietals. Fourteen hectares of estate-owned, biodynamic vineyards lie between Anderson Valley and Alexander Valley in the finest wine-growing region.
Le Vin Winery is Housed in a Big Barn on a Small Hill
It was all started in 1983 when Bernard Levin joined his friend, Stephan Zellerbach, at the Zellerbach Winery in Sonoma County. Levin was brought up in San Francisco as a young classical musician and later became a singer-songwriter. His love for wines developed when he met Stephan at the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House. Later, Eric Bernard Levin established a partnership with Holly Rae Harman, a graphic artist, and purchased Le Vin Winery. Together, they planted hillside vineyards in 1993, 1994, and 1997. Today, Eric’s son, Jesse Hall, manages the family-owned winery, so the tradition continues.
Around 16 Acres of Certified Organic Vineyards
Today, Jesse Hall cultivates five acres of Merlot, five acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, three acres each of Cabernet Franc and Syrah. In between the rows of vines, he also grows other top-quality grape varieties, such as Zinfandel, Primitivo, Sauvignon Musque’, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Petite Sirah. Situated in the center, 250 olive groves and 125 redwood trees beautify the Le Vin Winery.
