“..desire to create a “First Growth of California.”—Bill Harlan

“I began with the desire to create a “First Growth of California.” The plan needed to be clear enough for direction but sufficiently flexible to evolve as we learned. We needed first to identify, capture, and cultivate great land; to assemble a team with a shared vision; to foster a strong culture; and to build a winegrowing domain that could last for centuries.”

—Bill Harlan, proprietor of Harlan Estate, Napa Valley
