About Silverado Vineyards
In 1981, Ron and Diane Miller and Diane’s mother, Lilian Disney, established Silverado Vineyards to begin making wines from the historic sites that comprise their estate. Their ranches were first planted to vineyards by Napa pioneers between 1865 and 1895. Each plays an important role in establishing the reputation of their appellations: Carneros, Coombsville, Yountville, Soda Creek Canyon and Stags Leap District. The outstanding fruit from these vineyards is the exclusive source of Silverado Vineyards’ Estate and Single Vineyards wines -- the Miller family’s highest expression of the Napa Valley they love and admire.
