Our team at Victor Vineyards is passionate about making award-winning wines harvested from historic vineyards rich in taste and affordable to all.

The wines are the way they are because we are in each of our vineyards constantly, from bud break to harvest and because we go for a balanced style in all our wines. Our entire team is passionate about making wines that leave an impact throughout its global community as well as within its hometown of Victor, and its neighboring communities.

Rob Lawson, Owner

Our owner Robert Lawson 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 known 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.

Ian Lawson, Winemaker

It’s difficult to keep Ian Lawson away from Victor’s vineyards. “The wines are the way they are because I’m in each vineyard at least once a week, from bud break to harvest, and because we go for a balanced style in all our wines,” shares Ian. We don’t have one wine that leads with oak… I like all our wines to be clean, crisp and fresh – something we can enjoy with food.
