Vineyard 7 & 8

After a measured and patient search for a vineyard property in the Napa Valley, the Steffens Family ended their quest when they acquired a forty-acre property atop Spring Mountain. Planted in the early 1980’s to eight acres of each Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, the property met the family’s stringent requirements to sustainably grow premium grapes allowing them to craft wines with a true sense of place.

Founded in 1999 and named after proprietor Launny Steffens’ life and background in the world of finance with a theme encompassed by numerics, and a keen interest in numerology — “seven” being a number of luck in western culture, while “eight” follows the meanings of prosperity and happiness in eastern culture — Vineyard 7 & 8 is the culmination of the family’s pursuit for producing fine wines including Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

The Wines

The wines of Vineyard 7 & 8 are first and foremost a reflection of the estate vineyards. They reveal the uncompromising pursuit of Winemaker Martha McClellan and Associate Winemaker Wesley Steffens philosophy of producing exceptional, handcrafted wines through experience, passion and humility. 

Sustainable Viticulture

As stewards of the land, the team believes in the practice of sustainable viticulture allowing the vineyards to tell their story each and every vintage. As a result, the wines echo a sense of the estate nestled 2020 feet above the Napa Valley floor within the Spring Mountain District.
