The documented history of the property extends back to 1841 and includes General Mariano Vallejo, Dr. Edward Bale, Charles Krug, and Eli York, just to name a few. The land has been continuously farmed for over 150 years, with the Titus family’s first harvest in 1969. Dr. Lee Titus, a Radiologist, practicing in Sonoma at the time, purchased the land in 1968 and soon after, took over farming the vineyard.
The evolution of wine production in Napa was moving towards those varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot – and to further emulate the Bordeaux region, Lee oversaw planting all five of the classic varietals as the old vineyards were being replanted. And so, Titus Vineyards began; bringing together the traditional grapes of Bordeaux in a New World site marked the beginning of the family wine venture.
Titus Vineyards’ Vista Room offers a stunning view of their 50-acre vineyard estate, showcasing the beauty and wonder of this valley of dreams. This seated, semi-private experience is approximately one hour in duration, during which you are guided through a curated selection of truly exceptional Napa Valley wines all while gazing at the very vines from which the wines are made.
