Ric Forman is one of California’s most iconic wine figures and has been making wine in Napa Valley since his first vintage in 1966.

Forman Vineyard was founded in 1983 to fulfill a dream of producing small quantities of classically made Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

In 1978, after a three year search of the Napa Valley for the perfect location, Ric Forman purchased the current winery and vineyard site which is perched on a ridge at the base of Howell Mountain overlooking the town of St. Helena.

A remarkable site, it has produced some unusually elegant wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

Forman is founded on a philosophy of winemaking which follows a more traditional approach as opposed to a technological one.

With a wonderfully situated vineyard and deliberately planned cellar, Ric and his family are fulfilling a dream in the pursuit of producing the finest quality possible from the estate.

Viticulture, the driving force of quality in wine, is pursued without compromise in Ric Forman’s vineyards. His goal is to fully capture the best of his Saint Helena site’s terroir, and he put in the time, care, and attention to detail to make that happen.

In the winery, Ric draws out the identity of each vineyard parcel by using equipment specifically designed for small-lot production.

You can rest assured that in a survey of Napa Cabernet, Forman will highlight the best of a vintage.
