Lester Estate wines

Vineyard-Driven Wines

One Site, One grower, Diverse Expressions

The terroir of Lester Estate transcends the stamp of any single cellar. So instead of working with a single winemaker, we collaborate with a group of vintners to produce an array of interpretations of this special site under our own Lester Estate label. Our extremely limited production—just 100 to 200 cases of each wine, annually—captures ephemeral snapshots of each vintage. Join our Safari Wine Club to ensure access to these rare and extraordinary wines.

Site-Driven Winemakers

Translating Terroir

Our winemakers select the vine rows and clones they want to work with each fall, then communicate with our vinetenders throughout the year, from vineyard to cellar. We give them the freedom and support to follow whatever cellar protocols they choose. Our highlight of the year is a single afternoon when we all gather, with barrel samples and bottles, to compare and contrast the wines of the vintage. To experience the Lester Estate lineup of wines is to truly understand the concept of terroir.

The Vine Whisperer

Prudy Foxx studied environmental science in college and has trained in enology as well as in viticulture at the University of Bordeaux and the University of Dijon in France. She holds the WSET level 3 “with merit” certification and takes a European approach to her work, following the fruit to the cellar door. Building upon her scientific background in agricultural biology, Prudy takes a holistic approach to vineyard management, addressing systems rather than vines, with regenerative, organic, and biodynamic practices that focus on soil health and building biodiversity.

For me, the real message of Lester Estate was in the soil. It was so expressive. I felt like we could do something really special.
