As far back as 1854, Langtry Estate & Vineyards — formerly Guenoc Estate Vineyards & Winery — has been a home to winegrapes. From 1888 to 1906, it was home to actress Lillie Langtry, who continued the grape-growing tradition of the land and whose face continues to grace the Guenoc label. In 1963, the winery was established by the Magoon family who also planted extensive vineyard acreage and were among the first in California to plant the five major red Bordeaux grape varieties. By 1981, Guenoc Valley was approved as an AVA — the first single-proprietor AVA in the country, with such spectacular views, some people travel to Guenoc just to have a look. Today, under new ownership, Langtry Estate & Vineyards continues to thrive with a Petite Sirah that has won more gold medals and best of show awards than any other Petite Sirah in the world.
