The history of AXR Napa Valley estate is compounded in layers; rooted in historic tales of fierce Native American hunting grounds, wild west pioneers and the first woman vintner of California in 1886. It has changed hands over the course of 134 years to become a brewery, restaurant, inn, winery and saloon. Tales of love, lust, heartbreak, murders and great fortune create an imaginative backdrop to our present-day vision of AXR.

The new axr dream began with four friends sitting around a table sharing, dreaming, laughing, and occasionally sipping! The room was filled with an intense passion for wine and a good intention to be true to themselves and the history of napa valley: this is where axr was born. By utilizing modern and innovative techniques in the cellar, we extract the unique soul of Napa Valley’s soils into wines enjoyable now, or many years to come.

The Fab4, as we call them, are our three founders: Kelly Trevethan, Mark Schratz and Don Van Laeken, as well as our Winemaker, Jean Hoefliger. This group of unassuming romantics believes in paying homage to the pioneers who had the vision, planted the vines, and grew the napa valley lifestyle. Our team is looking forward to engaging with new people, telling a joke or two, and sharing great wine!
