The Ehret family

Our family estate, Bavarian Lion Vineyards, is located in Knights Valley, Northern Sonoma County.

We have been farming top quality Bordeaux varietals since 1996, selling much of our fruit to prestigious wineries in the Napa Valley. In 2005, we decided to reserve our highest quality grapes for our own brand, Ehret. While we sell many of our grapes to prestigious producers, we reserve specific blocks that go into our own brand.


Our winemaker, Erin Green understands that great wines begin in the vineyard. She is actively involved in viticultural aspects, working with Alex and Ben to create balance in the vines and enabling optimum ripeness in the grapes.

At harvest time she looks for mature skins and seeds with concentrated flavors. During harvest grapes are cold soaked to extract flavors before fermentation. Our fermentation regime is adapted by block to optimize flavors and create balance. The wines are aged in high quality French Oak barrels and blended to Erin’s liking.

Customer reviews

“Ruby-black in color with a bright medium-to-full body. Flavors of currants and blackberries, subtle notes of oak, and an aroma that can transport the taster back to Calistoga and Healdsburg each time the first drop is poured. It’s delectability may make one eager to finish a glass quickly—but patience is rewarded, as the wine’s complexity reveals itself over time. A must-have for any special occasion or holiday dinner, especially one that includes beef, venison, or berry pies.”

Steve Crandall

“A lip smacking Merlot with lush fruit and an unmistakable note of dark chocolat that will stand up to any protein from the grill.”


Drew Tomassini

“The best merlot we’ve ever had. Truly a gem. Year in and year out. If you’re on the fence, get off, have a glass, and enjoy. Honestly it’s probably the best wine we’ve discovered in Napa.”

William Oakland
