With a reputation for producing terroir-inspired wines, the Napa Valley is one of the most coveted appellations in the world. A region where dreams can come true, enthusiasts culminate to build, create and influence. Rooted in history, the region’s legacy dates to the 1800s. Characterized as a farm community, visionaries, such as Henry Pellet planted with one goal in mind, to be the best in the world.
A true pioneer, Pellet was one of the founding winemakers in the valley. Alongside, Charles Krug, John Patchett, H.W. Crabb and Dr. G.B. Crane, Pellet paved the way for generations to come.
With the purchase of Pellet Vineyards in 1863, Pellet planted 38 acres of his 45-acre parcel in the southwest corner of St. Helena. Over the years, growth ensued. With the expansion to a wine cellar under the name of Pellet & Carver during the 1870s, Pellet’s determination led him to establish one of the first commercial wineries and become elected as the first secretary of the St. Helena Viticulture Society.
Though Henry Pellet passed away in 1912, his legacy lived on. As the property changed hands over the years, the vision, passion and inspiration behind the name went along with it.
Then, in 2004, the Krill family acquired a parcel of the historic property and built an estate and vineyard carrying on in the footsteps of Henry Pellet. Launching Krill Family Vineyards, the Krill family collaborated with a team of talented professionals to create the Pellet Estate brand and wine portfolio.
Today, the vineyard, brand and spectacular estate is for sale embodying the character and vitality established years ago.
