First Vineyard &

J.J. Dufour Winery

The more research that we conducted to be sure of the

exact site of First Vineyard,

the more we found about John James Dufour, the vintner, surveyor, civil engineer, Mason, inventor and entrepreneur.

He was a truly brilliant and fascinating man. We came to admire him so much that we wanted to not only reopen his beloved First Vineyard

but also bottle amazingly

good wine under his name,

J.J. Dufour Winery.

So in his honor, we

offer many of our wines.

 

Please come visit, taste

our wines and discover more about the history that

First Vineyard has to offer.
