Robin Daniel Lail’s heritage began in 1879 with the founding of Inglenook Vineyards by her great -granduncle, the iconic Captain Gustav Niebaum. By the early 1890s, this brilliant man’s obsession for achieving the pinnacle of excellence earned Inglenook wines the status of being considered by many as the finest produced in the country.
The determination to achieve excellence was carried forward through the decades following Niebaum’s death in 1908, with a crescendo in the thirty years following the repeal of Prohibition under the meticulous, passionate stewardship of John Daniel, Jr., Robin’s father. The collection of Cabernets coming from his years of ownership is still celebrated today as some of the finest red wines on earth.
Although Inglenook was sold in 1964, the passion for winemaking did not fade. Robin inherited her father’s respect for tradition. Today her family honors his legacy with their relentless pursuit to produce wines second to none.
Robin Daniel Lail 的里程於1879年開始，當時她的曾叔父 Gustav Niebaum 發現了 Inglenook 葡萄園，這位出色的人士對極佳品質的追求，讓 Inglenook 的葡萄酒在1890年代已成為美國本土內最出色的產品之一。
Niebaum 於1908年離世後，追求完美的決心並沒有減退，且延續到當禁酒令廢除後的幾十年，Robin 父親 John Daniel Jr. 積極帶領下，由他管理下的赤霞珠至今仍獲推崇為全世界最優質的紅酒之一。
雖然 Inglenook 於1964年被賣出，其釀酒的熱情絕無減退，Robin 承傳了其父親對傳統的尊重，今天她的家族以努力不懈地生產優質葡萄酒，來向 John 致敬。
