- Founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, with the intent of exclusively producing Bordeaux varieties in the Napa Valley, their eponymous winery became one of the first in California to focus on Merlot, sourcing fruit from seven estate vineyards, and several others spread throughout Napa's many micro-climates. Decoy, with its inaugural release in 1985, became Duckhorn's first spin off.
