Jim Barbour, Farmer
A Napa Valley native, Jim Barbour isn’t just one of the top vineyard managers in all of California, he’s also one of our closest family friends.
“Jim and I have been walking vineyards together for something like 45 years, and can pretty much finish each other’s sentences .” – Marc Mondavi
Jim’s client list reads like a who’s who of cult Cabernet, including Hundred Acre, Checkerboard, Keever, Entre Nous, Revana, Heidi Barrett, Casa Piena and Aloft, among others. His management style tenaciously upholds sustainable and responsible farming methods, as well as organic and biodynamic practices. We can’t say enough good things about his green thumb and general feel for the land.
