Salvestrin Estate Vineyard was established in 1932 and is in its third generation of family ownership. In 1994 Rich and Shannon Salvestrin brought the farming operation full circle by founding Salvestrin Winery. Situated on a historic vineyard originally planted by Dr. George Crane in 1860, the Salvestrin property encompasses not only the vineyard and winery, but also family gardens and The Salvestrin Inn where wine club members can stay overnight in the Victorian house that was built by Dr. Crane. The tasting room looks out over the estate and is open by appointment only. Salvestrin produces limited quantities of estate grown and bottled wines which are farmed to organic standards. The current releases are 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, 2014 Retaggio (an Italian proprietary blend), 2014 Sangiovese, 2014 Petite Sirah and the winery’s two Cabernet Sauvignons--- 2012 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2012 3D Cabernet Sauvignon, Dr. Crane Vineyard (made in honor of the fourth generation).
