Oakville | Napa Valley
The Ehrlich Vineyard is situated in Oakville, the heart of the Napa Valley, just south of the Oakville Cross Road. This site was originally planted to grapes in the early 20th century, but was quickly planted to walnuts once prohibition set in. It was again planted to grapes in the 1940’s and has remained a great vineyard ever since. There are still several walnut trees scattered throughout the site from the orchard days.
