This beautiful 61-acre property sits just west of the Silverado Trail in Oakville. The property is the same footprint in size from when John (1902-1990) and Joan (1908-2001) TENCH purchased this site in 1965, the same year that John retired as the Manager of Shell Oil. He was born and raised in the United Kingdom in the small village of Bromfield in the county of Shropshire (or Shrops, for short).

Today Brian and Adair’s daughter Margaret TENCH and her husband Rem Reigersman live on the property and oversee the vineyard; they met in 1997 while both were studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. They founded TENCH VINEYARDS with their first vintage in 2017. And in 2016/2017 they built a state-of-the-art winery and caves on the property – used for their own wines but also for a small group of other premium producers.
