Ceago Vinegarden is owned by Jim Fetzer, former President of Fetzer Vineyards. Jim grew up with his ten brothers and sisters in the vineyards of Mendocino County. The Fetzer family built their business into an internationally-recognized and respected winery. In 1968, the family started producing just a few dozen cases. When the family sold the winery in 1992, Fetzer Vineyards was producing two and a half million cases of wine annually and was growing 1,200 acres of wine grapes certified organic. The Fetzer family led the U.S. wine industry in organic farming and ecological business practices. In 1993, Jim Fetzer established Ceago Vinegarden. Currently, one of Jim’s children, Barney, brings his talents into managing the Vinegarden.
