WEBSITE

Dick and Deirdre Shea are the owners of this legendary vineyard that dates back to the late 1980s. It began as a venture to grow exceptional grapes and sell them to some of the best producers in the area, those who were dedicated to quality and showcasing Shea vineyard fruit, which created a cult following. Now, Dick and Deirdre oversee their own small quantity wine production, using 25% of their fruit to produce their own label with their first vintage in 1996.
