hey have farmed their estate since they purchased the land in 1994. Coming together as if following a recipe out of a cook book, Warren Barlow Smith, a salesman, and Jeanne Smith, an accountant and financial manager, along with their son Barr Smith, a Geology major, and daughter-in-law Ann Smith, a Botany major, formed the family behind the vineyard estate and wines. Their entry into wine production came as a result of making a small amount of 100% estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, originally only meant for family and friends.

The Joy of Wine – Our philosophy of wine and food goes back to Koerner Rombauer’s ancestors from the wine growing region of Reingau, Germany, where wine is considered an essential complement to a meal.

“The beginning of vine planting is like the beginning of mining for precious metals: the winegrower also ‘prospects’.”
- Robert Louis Stevenson,
The Silverado Squatters, 1880
A century later, the Miller family began the journey Stevenson described, establishing Silverado Vineyards in 1981. “It was beautiful land, and it was land that was working,” says Diane Miller of their first vineyards, purchased in the 1970s. Diane and Ron sold their grapes to some of Napa’s best vintners, who made award winning wines from them year after year. Encouraged, they struck out on their own with the goal of making the best wines the estate could produce at a fair price. This has remained the guiding philosophy over the years. The winery’s name, Silverado, comes from the abandoned mining town at the top of the Napa Valley, where Stevenson stayed so many years ago. It is an appropriate symbol: three generations of the Miller family are still “prospecting” for wine, staying true to the idea of coaxing something precious from the soils we are privileged to care for.
