History of Le Vin Vineyards and Le Vin Family History
 

The Le Vin Family Wine Business has been in existence since 1983, originally founded by Bernard Levin—now going back 4 generations of winemaking. Bernard was a friend of Stephen Zellerbach, whom he knew from the Actor’s Workshop at the Marines Memorial Theater in San Francisco and from the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House where Bernard worked. Bernard and Ellen Le Vin were friends of Charmian London in the 1940's and visited her at the Jack London Ranch on weekends.

Bernard and his son Eric Levin began making award winning wines at Zellerbach Winery in 1983. In 1985 Le Vin Cellars received its first Gold Medal for its Cabernet Sauvignon at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. In 1987 Le Vin Cellars wines were distributed in Japan. In 1993 the Levin’s and the Harman’s purchased this 164 acre ranch in the scenic Yorkville Highlands Appellation of Mendocino County, that is today Le Vin Estate Winery & Vineyards. They planted 5 acres of Merlot, 5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 acres of Cabernet Franc, 3 acres of Syrah, 250 olive trees and 125 redwood trees.

In 1999 Le Vin Vineyards released its first Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot harvested from their beautiful 16 acres of vineyards. The Le Vin highland mountain vineyards rise up 1550 to 1900 feet above sea level, closer to the sun and above the fog, which results in the full and delicious wines that have made the Le Vin wines so loved and sought after.

Eric's son Jesse now helps with the winemaking and so the family tradition continues.The girl holding the grapes in her hand on the Le Vin label was illustrated by Stephen Haines Hall, the well known wine poster and label artist. She symbolizes the romance of wine, olive oil, delicious healthy foods, and living the good life in harmony with nature.

Eric Levin and Holly Harman are the owners of Le Vin Winery & Vineyards. The magic of excellent wines attracted them to manifest their vision of being able to share such excellence with others. Their tasting room is open by appointment only for private wine tastings.
