Vineyard 7 & 8 is the culmination of a quest that began with a patient and measured search for a vineyard property in the Napa Valley which met our family's specific requirements for being an already established vineyard or land with outstanding potential for growing premium grapes. That search ended in 1999 when we aquired our forty-acre property on Spring Mountain, planted in the early 1980's to eight acres each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
The winery is named in recognition of proprietor Launny Steffens' life and background in the world of finance. An appreciation for numerics and keen interest in numerology lead to 7 & 8 - "Seven" being a number of luck in western culture, while "Eight" follows the meanings of prosperity and happiness in eastern culture.
Vineyard 7 & 8 reflects the uncompromising pursuit and vision towards producing premium, handcrafted wines highlighting a sense of place within the Spring Mountain District through experience, passion and humility.
