Gaylon Lawrence Jr. Buys Haynes Vineyard in Coombsville for $12.5 million

September 25, 2019

The property east of Napa includes 32 planted acres, a 20,000-gallon winery, and vineyard manager residence. Heitz president and CEO Carlton McCoy said the company will source Chardonnay, Syrah and Pinot Noir beginning with the 2020 vintage for a new brand. There will be no tasting room on the site. The late Duncan Haynes, an attorney, and his wife, Pat, developed the vineyard in the 1960s on land that had been in his mother's family since 1885. The family opened Whitford Cellars in 1983. Ancien leased the winery until earlier this year
