Louis M. Martini built his winery in the Napa Valley in 1933. His passion was Cabernet Sauvignon. Martini planted vineyards to reflect that passion, and also acquired top Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in Napa and Sonoma countries.

Today Winemaker Micheal Martini continues his grandfather’s tradition of crafting rich, complex and beautifully-structured wines.
