"Kate and I wanted to recapture the potential of this incredible vineyard and make wines for a new generation that truly reflect the stature, personality, and history of this world class site."
~ Cam Baker, Proprietor
The 1997 Larkmead Cabernet Sauvignon is released to great acclaim and a new era at Larkmead begins to take shape. Wines are produced at Napa Wine Company, a cooperative winery in Oakville. Cam Baker and Kate Solari Baker form their vision to revive and re-invigorate the Larkmead and long-term plans are drawn for the construction of a new winery on the Larkmead Estate. Winemaker Andy Smith joins Larkmead and for the next 15 years is to guide Larkmead wines back to pride of place amongst the finest that Napa Valley can produce.
