The winery stands on part of the original land grant made to Salvador Vallejo by the government of Mexico in 1838. Vintner Groezinger purchased a portion of the land from the George C. Yount Estate for 250 dollars in United States gold coin. The boundary originally included that portion of the village of Yountville that lies south of Madison Street. The winery was in used from 1870 to 1954. During the 100 years that the buildings have had very little alteration and most of the original ones stand here on this 20 acre site.
