The winery "Araujo Estate Wines" in Calistoga in the northeast of the Californian Napa Valley was founded in 1990 by Bart and his wife Daphne Araujo. He purchased one of California's most famous vineyards, the Eisele Vineyard, which had already been planted in 1880. The vineyard covers almost 16 hectares. The manor house and the winery were newly built. The well-known consultant David Abreu was hired to support the development. Premium wines include red wines from Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Besides wine, grappa, honey and olive oil are also produced.
