From 1888 to 1906 the Guenoc Estate was owned by internationally famous actress and vintner Lillie Langtry, who vowed to make "claret of the finest kind known in the country " in her California valley and placed her portrait on her estate produced bottles of wine. Today, the George Watts' portrait of Lillie Langtry has become the famous cameo trademark of Guenoc wines.
The valley vineyards at Guenoc grow at an elevation of about 1,000 feet. Its hillside vineyards rise above 1500 feet, and the distinctive northern vineyards of Guenoc's Napa Valley rest at about 800 feet above sea level. As a result of such elevation, grape varietals such as cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay ripen fully under the rich California sun, and yet retain their acidity and structure thanks to the cool nights of the mountain foothills. The 23,000 acres (about 30 square miles) of Guenoc and Langtry estate represent an area about the size of a modem large city.
