Detert Family Vineyards is owned and operated by Tom Garrett, John Garrett and Bill Cover. The foundation for our interest in wine was laid four generations ago and made possible by our great grandmother who purchased our family vineyard in 1953. Over the decades, our passion for winegrowing was cultivated under the tutelage of our grandparents and parents, who as amateurs crafted legendary Napa Valley Cabernets during their time.


Located along the western foothills of Napa Valley’s celebrated Oakville appellation, engulfed by the famed To Kalon vineyard, the Detert family vineyard has grown outstanding Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for almost sixty years. Over the decades, these grapes have helped establish Napa Valley, and particularly Oakville, as one of the premier Cabernet winegrowing regions in the world.

Our mission is to continue the family winegrowing legacy established by our parents and grandparents, which is to craft exceptional wines from this unique location in Oakville and to share them with people who appreciate the care, and attention to quality, that go into our family crafted wines.
