Diamond Creek Vineyards is an iconic Napa Valley estate with a long history of making some of California’s most revered Single-Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. Diamond Creek Vineyards was founded in 1968 by Al and Boots Brounstein, pioneers of the modern Napa Valley wine industry. Risk-takers and visionaries, who early on, recognized the valley’s suitability for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, they also understood the powerful role that soils and microclimates play in determining the character of a wine. Slowly, steadily, and with no compromises, Al and Boots developed their Diamond Mountain estate into a property like no other in Napa Valley, assiduously dissecting it into four parcels with distinct terroirs. From these microsites, Volcanic Hill, Gravelly Meadow, Red Rock Terrace and Lake, they created captivating, complex, long-lived wines and a brand beloved by legions. In 2020, 52 years after its founding, Diamond Creek was acquired by the Rouzaud family of world-renowned Maison Louis Roederer, whose roots in wine date to the 1700s. The relationship between the Rouzaud and Brounstein families stretched back three decades, with an admiration and mutual respect for one another born of a common love for wine and its role in history, culture and life. In Frédéric Rouzaud and his family, the Brounsteins found the ideal stewards for Diamond Creek: a family with a deep reverence for history and a generational vision for the future of the wine estates under its care. “Our relationship with Diamond Creek began with a personal connection. We knew of its history in Napa Valley, its focus on terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon. But when we met Al and Boots Brounstein, we discovered something much deeper: the vital energy and passion for the land that lies at the heart of great wine estates the world over. The opportunity to carry on their legacy resonated with us.” - Frédéric Rouzaud
