Andy Beckstoffer was trained as an engineer, but he's been training North Coast vines to produce world-class wines for four decades. He acquired what is now Beckstoffer Vineyards in 1973.

Today, the company is one of the 20 largest winegrape growers in California, farming 5,000 acres of North Coast grapes. That includes 1,000 acres of Napa County vines and 1,500 acres each in Mendocino County and the Red Hills appellation of Lake County.
