About The Winery...

Lancaster Estate remains true to the founding vision of Proprietor, Ted Simpkins. A family owned winery, dedicated to crafting wines that are Estate grown, bottled, and produced.

In 1995, it was purchased the former Maacama Creek Winery and its surrounding vineyard and gave the Estate our family name, Lancaster. Lancaster was attracted to the site’s abundant hillsides, knowing that their diverse elevations, aspects and slopes would provide a wide range of micro-climates from which they could produce wines of intensity and concentrated varietal character.

The Estate is located at the southernmost tip of Alexander Valley, and includes 53 hillside acres of vineyard surrounding the winery. Situated near the confluence of the Knights Valley and Chalk Hill appellations, this location offers a great diversity of soils and micro-climates and the optimum growing conditions for Bordeaux varieties. Our Estate is uniquely blessed with warm days and cool nights, and a longer growing season than other Cabernet-driven appellations. As a result, our wines express their rich, ripe flavors with bright vibrancy and balance.

The property consists of 24 vineyard blocks that are sub-divided into 27 distinct sub-blocks. The vineyard is planted exclusively to the classic Bordeaux varieties—Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.
