Dave Homewood started as a home winemaker in 1983 when he and two friends produced wine from a ton of Alexander Valley cabernet sauvignon. The following year they added a ton of Alexander Valley chardonnay. In 1986 they purchased their first ton of chardonnay from the newly formed Carneros appellation and the styles of wine Homewood Winery became noted for were born.
The winery was bonded in 1988, with an initial case production of about 500 cases. Zinfandel was added to the production of chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon in 1992. That year saw case production soar to 2,000. All of the grapes are purchased from growers so David can choose grapes from appellations where they do best.
