Keever Vineyards is a small family owned and operated winery in Yountville, in the Napa Valley. And when we say family owned and operated, we mean it. On any given day there are between two and four Keevers on site. During fruit processing, we get aunts and uncles in too. Dad, Bill Keever, does a lot of everything from washing barrels to wine deliveries. Mom, Olga Keever, runs the office, works with distributors, and ensures all our compliance obligations are met. Son, Jason specializes in production. Daughter, Ashley Keever is the Director of Hospitality and Liz Wilkens is the creator and Director of the Keever Vineyards Wine Society. Ashley and Liz host visitors who come to taste our wines and tour the winery and cave. Their true titles should be Directors of Charisma.
Winemaker Celia Welch calls the shots, and Jason makes sure everything gets done in a manner that ensures the highest quality and that no details, however small, are overlooked.
Our first vintage was 2002 when we made 46 cases. A few years later, the Keever brand had achieved some moderate recognition, and based on that we decided to build our winery and dig our cave. Keever Vineyards currently produces around 2,000 cases annually.
