Gargiulo Vineyards

A farmer who built his Florida-based fresh-produce company into one of the nation’s largest before serving as the CEO of Sunkist from 2001 to 2006, Jeff Gargiulo understands soil. Thus, when a parcel of land on Money Road in Napa Valley’s Oakville appellation became available in 1992, he did not hesitate to buy it, intending to realize his longtime dream of making exceptional, complex wines. Eight years later, he purchased another remarkable tract of land near the Screaming Eagle estate, the 575 OVX Vineyard, which became not only the site of Gargiulo’s boutique winery but also his family’s home. Here, Gargiulo and winemaker Kristof Anderson coax from the land some of California’s most distinctive expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon. Robb Report Editor in Chief Brett Anderson pays a visit to this breathtaking property, where members of the Gargiulo family celebrate their love of wine, food, and music among the vines.
