About Groth Vineyards

It was 1981 when Dennis Groth, a successful executive at Atari, and his wife, Judy, purchased a 121-acre vineyard property in Oakville, in the heart of Napa Valley. Though the vineyard needed attention, the Cabernet Sauvignon it produced was exceptional. With a long-term vision, the couple designed a wine label with an image of their mission-style winery before it was even constructed. But by 1990, hard work and excellent wine reviews had put a winery on the property and Groth firmly on the map. Today, under the leadership of Suzanne Groth, Dennis and Judy’s daughter, our family’s two estates are flourishing. A decades-long plan to replant the vineyards is under way, ensuring the continuity of the estate wines and leading to the first new wines to join the Groth portfolio in decades. Rooted in Oakville and with the winery firmly under our family’s control, we are determined to leave a legacy for the next generation.
