The property was originally terraced for an apple farm in the early 1900's. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the property was revitalized with the creation of Sycamore Farms - an herb farm and vineyard.
In addition to Picpoul Blanc, Grenache, Grenache Blanc, Mourvedre, Clairette Blanche, and Ugni Blanc, the vineyard's pride and joy are the 30 year old Viognier and Syrah vines.
Jackie and Steve Gleason purchased the property in 2013. In addition to expanding and improving the vineyard, they created Four Lanterns Winery which they named for their four daughters. They completed construction of the production facility in August of 2016, just in time for harvest. This addition enables their wines to be both estate grown and produced. Their family home, located in the Templeton Gap, is the location of Jackie's Vineyard which features Bordeaux varietals.
During the summer months, the winery hosts Sunday evening concerts on the lawn. Read more about which bands are coming up on our facebook page!
