Maybach Family Vineyards
For 100 years the name Maybach has been synonymous with quality at the finest level. The tradition of individuality and craftsmanship established by their ancestors is honored with their handmade wine. From a single block of the Weitz Vineyard above the Silverado Trail, Maybach offers a deeply concentrated, elegantly textured Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker Thomas Brown's minimalist approach encourages the character of the Oakville region to express itself through rich aromas and flavors. Born and raised in Sumter, South Carolina, Thomas majored in English and economics at the University of Virginia. In 1996, he discovered wine, moved to the Napa Valley and got his start in an industry he says is “just perfect for me.”From humble beginnings as a trainee in a German Orphanage, Wilhelm Maybach went on to invent the high-speed internal combustion engine and in 1900, as chief engineer and business partner to Gottlieb Daimler, to design and build the first Mercedes cars. Advancing his father's legacy, Karl Maybach would develop the first high-speed diesel engines and, in 1920, would launch a private line of ultra-luxury automobiles which earned an unparalleled, worldwide reputation. In 2002, DaimlerChrysler would revitalize this Maybach brand in recognition of the father and son who together played such a monumental role in defining German engineering.
