About Heitz Wine Cellars

“Heitz Wine Cellars inhabits a pristine valley in the eastern hills of St. Helena known to the locals as Spring Valley. In 1964, Joe and Alice Heitz acquired this 160-acre ranch and winery to accommodate their burgeoning family business.”

“The gray stone cellar, constructed of hand-chiseled perlite in 1898, safeguards Heitz’ collection of French oak barrels which are filled with aging wine. The rich patina of its weathered walls is in perfect harmony with the high-tech equipment dotting the landscape of the winery’s grounds in the 21st century.”
