Our vineyards in Oakville have been farmed by Rawson Kelham for the last thirty-five years. In 1998, Rawson and Susanna Kelham rebuilt the old Shadow Brook Winery on Zinfandel Lane in St. Helena. After three years, the ten-acre facility is now planted with seven acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and a new winery facility is being constructed. Hamilton and Ron Nicholsen, the winemakers, grew up in the Napa Valley and developed a passion for wine. They have been closely involved with several different wineries and made home wine for several years prior to developing their own label. After graduating from college, Ron in architecture and Hamilton in hotel restaurant management, they pursued their goal to build a family winery and produce fine wines.

Kelham Vineyards and Winery is an excellent adventure in wine tasting. Everything was perfect. The grounds are beautiful. Sue made us feel like family the moment we arrived. We joined the club and will visit this winery every visit to Napa The wines are excellent.

Beautiful setting that made you feel right at home. Susanna and her family were very hospitable and of course the wines were to die for. Our tasting included the charcuterie lunch platter, which I highly recommend. And one must visit her gallery of paintings and...More

I don't remember the cost, but the experience, hospitality, and incredible wines were worth the price. The family setting and ambience were the best, and we will visit again🍷
