- Founded by Joe and Alice Heitz in 1961, their eponymous winery is one of the handful that put Napa on the map. Now helmed by daughter Kathleen, with brother David continuing his nearly 4 decades of winemaking duties, the Heitz empire encompasses 1000 acres, with nearly 400 under (organically-farmed) vine, in some of Napa's most prized real estate. A legendary Cabernet.
