Landmark Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Landmark Vineyards is one of the California’s leading wineries that has grown through excellence and quality of wines offered. The discovered history of Landmark Vineyards reveals its roots all the way back to 1838 in America’s heartland. In 1989, Damaris Deere Ethridge, following the family tradition in agriculture, relocated Landmark Vineyards from Windsor, a town that was slowly being smothered by urban sprawl to a spectacular piece of land at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain in the Sonoma Valley.
Damaris assumed that Landmark could develop as the leader of wineries and built a Spanish mission style winery operational with high-tech winemaking equipment capable of producing 20,000 cases of wine per year. With the help of renowned landscape architect, Morgan Wheelock, they developed the 20-acre site into a lush, gorgeously landscaped wine estate. In 1993, they hired world-renowned consulting enologist Helen Turley to work with winemaker, Eric Stern. This collaboration led to some excellent winemaking. Under Eric’s direction, Landmark’s wines have consistently garnered rave reviews from the wine writers.
Landmark Vineyards offers wines that are appropriate for any occasion. Their signature wine, the Overlook Chardonnay is approachable, inexpensive blend perfect for personal house wines and restaurant wines by the glass. The other classic varietals and several excellent dessert wines also make up these selections.

Landmark’s mission is to make great wines that enhance the joy of life. In addition to the estate vineyard, Landmark sources grapes from a range of different vineyards and those selected are among the finest in the highly diverse microclimates of California’s winegrowing regions. Nevertheless, there is a crucial process that defines their idealistic approach and establishes a reference for maneuvers exclusively suited to each fermentation lot.
