John Trefethen '62

Trefenthen Vineyards is owned and operated by John Trefethen '62 and his family. Back in the 1960s, John's father purchased six small farms and the ramshackle 19th-century Eschol Winery, creating a 600-acre wine estate. His intention was to sell all the grapes, but John had other ideas. In 1973, aided by his wife Janet, he produced Trefethen Vineyards’ first commercial wine. Just three years later, the winery’s 1976 Chardonnay earned “Best Chardonnay in the World” honors at the 1979 Gault Millau World Wine Olympics in Paris. That accomplishment, coupled with John’s good business sense and determination to create a world-class wine estate, have put Trefethen Vineyards on the global fine wine map.
