Raymond Vineyards traces its family roots to the origins of winemaking in America's most fabled wine region. Embodying the spirit of the "Old Napa Valley", the Raymond family worked side-by-side to build their winery from the ground-up. After arriving in the Napa Valley in 1933, marrying Martha Jane Beringer in 1936, and enjoying more than thirty-five years working in every facet of Beringer Winery, in 1970 Roy Raymond Sr., together with his sons Walter and Roy Jr., decided that it was their time to put their family name on the deep roots they'd laid in the Napa Valley.
Their first vintage crush in 1974 was emblematic of the early Napa Valley harvests: the family worked together, caring for every facet of the winery - hospitality to farming, fermentation, bottling and sales.
