When Two Minds Merge Great Things Can Happen


The Dreamer


Our owner Robert Lawson considers himself a newcomer to the area (he's only been there 50+ years) and always had a dream of owning his own vineyards and winery located where he and his family were raised. So in 1993 he purchased 90 acres in the Mokelumne River AVA, now know as our Lawson Vineyard. After successfully building a reputation for supplying grapes to some of the best wineries throughout the United States, Lawson purchased the historic Victor Fruit Growers Company location in 1999 to house his dream of crafting wines he could call his own.

The Maestro


 Larry brings over 30 years of winemaking experience to Victor Vineyards.  Starting as winemaker at Dry Creek Vineyards at the age of 22, Levin was the youngest winemaker in the country at that time. Through the years, Levin has crafted wine for a number of iconic brands in both hemispheres including, Franciscan Oakville Estate, Mount Veeder Winery, Estancia,  Veramonte and Quintessa. During this period Larry had the opportunity to work with Jacques Boissenot, Philippe Melka and Michele Rolland.
