ellis j alden, proprietor, ellis alden vineyards

Proprietor Ellis Alden has a deeply rooted love for the land and appreciation for natural beauty. As a little boy growing up in an east coast suburb, Ellis imagined himself as a westward pioneer, farmer and entrepreneur.

After completing college and law school, Ellis did move west, and in 1986 he purchased the Black Ranch in the Mayacamas Mountains overlooking the town of Geyserville, California. Ellis developed Ellis Alden Vineyards as a grape-growing operation in the center of an enormous garden that would thrive in concert with the land's natural gifts and beauty. He brought to this labor of love years of experience designing landscapes and building and operating businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area.
