David Abreu is a third generation native of the Napa Valley. David grew up in

Rutherford, California in a family with farming interests. Starting at an early

age, David worked during the summers at Inglenook and Caymus vineyard.

As time passed, his interests focused on viticulture and ultimately he began to

farm and manage several properties on his own. In 1980 he founded David Abreu

Vineyard Management, Inc. That same year he developed the Madrona Ranch

vineyard. David produced his first wine in 1986 from the Cabernet Sauvignon

and Cabernet Franc at Madrona Ranch. His first commercial release was with

the 1987 Abreu Madrona Ranch.
