LEVY & McCLELLAN is the product of Robert Levy and Martha McClellan, husband and wife team, who after years of practicing the skills of their shared passion for winemaking at other well known estates, united their individual experiences to an independent endeavor of their own. –
Robert Levy, the founding winemaker and director of vineyards for HARLAN ESTATE, Napa Valley California, has been there since its inception, more than 30 years ago. His scope of talents now include both BOND ESTATES and THE NAPA VALLEY RESERVE, where he oversees the production of wines from some of the greatest vineyard sites in Napa Valley.
Martha McClellan worked making the wines at Harlan Estate 1995 through 2000. In 2001, she took over the winemaking and vineyard direction at SLOAN ESTATE, an esteemed Napa Valley winery and vineyards located in the hills of Rutherford, where she continues to make the wines today.
Since 2006, Martha has added CHECKERBOARD VINEYARDS (2006), HAMEL FAMILY VINEYARDS (2012) and VINEYARD 7 & 8 (2013) to her portfolio and is currently making the wine for these unique hillside estate properties.
The philosophy for LEVY & McCLELLAN is based on the same exacting standards and unyielding dedication that marks all of the wines they make. The grapes come from their family owned vineyard nestled in the western foothills of Napa Valley. Presently in its fourteenth season, the meticulous detail employed in the selection of the site, the planting and the viticultural care, gives testament to their commitment as stewards of the land and to capturing and expressing to the fullest, the character and essence of this unique and diverse vineyard.
