Our story begins with Claude Berryhill purchasing land in Ceres, California when the Great Depression hit in the 1930’s. With a passion for farming, Claude established a fruitful agriculture operation to pass on to his family, in which Claude’s sons (Clare, Ron and Norm) stepped in and expanded the business over two decades – acquiring land throughout the Central Valley.
Clare’s son (Michael) eventually joined the operation as a third-generation farmer, bringing at a young age a passion for vines and wine. Following Bill’s marriage to Triana in 1991, the two made a dynamic pair and expanded the family vineyards to Clements, California, which is east of Lodi. Today, the majority of Berryhill grapes are grown and harvested in this award-winning region. Now Michael C Berryhill manages and own the business while other family members supports him.
