Born and raised on one of the very last farms in San Francisco, a young Fred Schweiger helped care for his grandparent’s vineyard as a boy. He purchased the Spring Mountain acreage in 1961 at the age of 19. Marriage, children, a successful construction company, and several years later, he and his wife, Sally, began a long-held dream: to clear and plant the family owned Spring Mountain property into vineyard in 1979. The Schweiger Estate was designed and developed by Fred and Sally with the help of family, with their first official harvest in 1984. Today the Schweigers are proud to be the longest property owners in the esteemed Spring Mountain AVA in the legendary Napa Valley, with ownership spanning four generations to live and work on the family estate. Their UC Davis-educated son Andy Schweiger serves as winemaker, crafting fine Bordeaux varietals, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, and their signature blend, Dedication. Fred and Sally look forward to joining you and sharing their wines and story.
