The Walport family settled in the Applegate Valley after the 1994 Northridge earthquake caused a fire destroying their home, but leaving the family uninjured. 

Bruce and Judy started their journey here with cattle, and after several years, their son Eric left for college.  The cattle were sold, and the land rested.  

Upon returning home to the Applegate, Eric and his wife Amy purchased their home next door, and started their journey to transform the retired cattle ranch into a vineyard.
