The Vineyardist

A Preferred Vintner of the NetJets Vintner Circle program

The gorgeous, historic vineyard sits high upon a forested ridge within the hills of the Diamond Mountain District, west of Calistoga. With an unforgettable view of the Napa Valley below, the five modest vineyard blocks—each ranging in elevation from 800 to 1300 feet—produce only 200–400 cases of cabernet sauvignon per year, which are consistently rated 96+ points by the world's most influential wine critics. To add to its uniqueness, The Vineyardist® is hand-farmed organically and sustainably. It is a Napa Green Certified Winery and is also certified under the Napa Green Certified Land program.
The Vineyardist is described by Forbes Magazine as "one of Napa's collector’s wineries." 

A Vineyardist Is Born

Following The Panic of 1873 and resulting bank failures, Danish-born Lorenz Peterson purchased a Napa Valley estate with his last $2,000. He quickly became skilled at farming his vineyards, and crafting and marketing the wine—thereby making himself an official vineyardist. Today, this same historic land now yields an extremely limited production of handmade, high-demand cabernet sauvignon for husband and wife team Dirk Fulton and Becky Kukkola.

NetJets + The Vineyardist

An Ideal Partnership

NetJets Vintner Circle is proud to count The Vineyardist among its list of preferred vintners. Like NetJets, The Vineyardist believes in attention to detail. Every step of the process is measured to the highest standard, upholding the integrity and quality until the final sip.

As a way to celebrate our elevated participation in this year's Hamptons events, we featured The Vineyardist on flights from Teterboro to the Hamptons. When our Owners arrange for flights to and throughout Calistoga (Napa Valley), California, their dedicated Owner Services Teams personally recommend a visit to the premium winegrowing estate. In return, The Vineyardist provides NetJets Owners with private tours, tastings, dedicated concierge services, and access to library wines. They are also offering special, customized harvest tours during which Owners will be able to pick fruit.
