Our Story

Juslyn Vineyards, owned by Perry and Carolyn Butler, is located in the prestigious

Spring Mountain District AVA, one of the highest regarded mountain appellations in the Napa Valley. The British ex-pats arrived in California in the 1980's as high-tech pioneers and founded a company in the San Francisco Bay area. After routine 80-hour work weeks, the couple relaxed during weekend trips to Napa Valley, where they were bitten by the wine bug. Dreams of high-tech dominance soon turned to thoughts of returning to the land and grape growing.

In 1997, their dream became a reality when Perry and Carolyn sold their computer business and founded Juslyn Vineyards on a site overlooking the renowned Spring Mountain Winery. 

Since then, there has been no turning back. Perry and Carolyn have committed to making the best wines possible in the heart of Napa Valley's acclaimed Spring Mountain District.

 Land &  Vineyard Team

Developing our vineyards in the rocky soils of Spring Mountain proved that wine was truly our labor of love. We replanted our Estate to a field blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

In 2001, we were able to produce 170 cases of wine that displayed elegance in the style of premier cru Bordeaux. Each Estate vintage thereafter has been more productive, and, now, with over 18 years of vine maturation we  benefit with 3 tons/acre from our 8-acre hillside vineyard. Every vintage becomes more exciting as we experience firsthand the future of Juslyn right here at home.

 

Heading up work in the vineyards is Renteria Vineyard Management, led by Salvador and Oscar Renteria, who have produced outstanding grapes for many prestigious Napa Valley vineyards. With their help, we have been able to select the most appropriate varieties for our vineyards and consistently farm the highest quality fruit.

“As proprietors Perry and Carolyn Butler moved toward all estate fruit from their 7 acres on the slopes of Spring Mountain, the quality of their wines increased dramatically. Juslyn has been a solid performer for many years, but the most recent vintages exhibit a profound rise in quality, yet prices remain realistic for high end Napa wines.”

Robert M. Parker, Jr. “The Best of Northern California” - Issue 180


“It seems to me that Juslyn is still somewhat under the radar for many wine consumers, but this is irrefutably an up-and-coming serious producer on Spring Mountain. Perry and Carolyn Butler, who own this magnificent 42-acre estate halfway up Spring Mountain, continue to fine-tune and increase the quality of their wines as the estate vineyards come into production. These wines have come on strong over the last three or four vintages, and they are brilliant examples of elegant Bordeaux-styled Cabernets, with freshness, outstanding aging potential, and beautiful purity and depth.”
