Before starting Raymond Vineyards with his two sons, Roy Raymond Sr. was a long time Napa resident. He first moved to the valley in 1933 and began working in the cellar at Beringer Vineyards in St Helena. In 1936, he married Martha Jane Beringer, the granddaughter of Frederic Beringer and the grand niece of Jacob Beringer.

Frederic and Jacob Beringer founded their winery in 1876 and it has been a Napa Valley institution ever since. In 1976, when the winery was sold, and Roy Raymond decided the time was right to start his own vineyard and winery.

He bought 90 acres of vines in the current Rutherford AVA just south of St Helena. Along with sons Roy Jr. and Walter, Roy Sr. began planting his vines and harvested his first grapes in 1974.

Today, Roy Jr. is currently the winery’s president and Walter is the winemaker. Continuing the family legacy, Roy Jr.’s son, Craig, recently became the vineyard manager. He oversees four different properties including the Estate Rutherford Vineyard, St Helena Vineyard, Jameson Ridge Vineyard, and Monterey Vineyard.

Raymond produces four different labels of wine. These include the Napa Valley Reserve, R Collection, Limited Edition, and Amber Hill. They specialize in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay.

I HAVE ENJOYED RAYMOND HILL CABERNET SAUVIGNON FOR YEARS AT TRADER JOES.
TRADER JOES CAN NO LONGER OBTAIN THE WINE.
WHAT IS GOING ON?

Many wineries sales are suffering at the wholesale level,ie: the people Trader Joes deal with, as a result these wineries are reallocting their wine toward direct to consumer sales. I can't speak definitavley conerning Raymond, but that might be what's happening.
