History

The Honig Vineyard and Winery is located in Rutherford, California, right in the heart of the Napa Valley. The 68-acre estate was originally purchased by Louis Honig in 1964, who planted Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which he sold to wineries in the area. Michael Honig (Louis' grandson) took over the estate in 1984, after his grandfather's passing, and in 1989 began to produce the first Cabernet Sauvignon. From humble beginnings growing and selling grapes, this family-owned winery has gone on to produce award-winning Cabernet Sauvignons. Starting with producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon in the beginning, the winery has gradually grown its production. At present, they produce six different wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Single Vineyard Cabernet, Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon Pink. In addition to producing award-winning wines, Honig Vineyard and Winery is also a leader in socially responsible business at the forefront of sustainable farming and business practices.
