Laurel Glen Vineyard, a thousand feet up the slopes of Sonoma Mountain, was well known as an excellent site for Cabernet Sauvignon even before the 1st vintage of Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was produced in 1981. The 16 acre vineyard was developed in the 1970’s by Sonoma wine pioneer Patrick Campbell.

After 30 vintages, Patrick Campbell sold the vineyard and winery to a group of wine lovers, led by wine industry veteran Bettina Sichel. The new team includes viticulturalist Phil Coturri, winemaker Randall Watkins and renowned vintner David Ramey. Under their stewardship, the reputation of Laurel Glen Vineyard is being rebuilt through refinements to the vineyard and the wine making.

Campbell remains a consultant to Laurel Glen Vineyard and continues to produce wines from California and Argentina under his new company name: Tierra Divina Vineyards.
