Walker Station Vineyards
Harry Walker began growing wine grapes in 1968 in various locales including Lodi, Napa Valley, Knight's Valley, and Dry Creek. Eventually he found the "perfect" vineyard near Forestville in the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley. The vineyard was named Walker Station in memory of the small town in Kentucky where his family originated. In 1997, Walker began to sell fruit to Paul Hobbs who made a vineyard-designate Chardonnay. In 2000, with Hobbs' assistance, Walker started his own label, Walker Station Vineyards. The pair now share the grapes from Walker Station Vineyard equally.
In 2001, the Leslie Ranch Vineyard was planted to Pinot Noir, named after Walker's mother's family. The first Pinot Noir from this vineyard was vinified by Paul Hobbs in 2005.
The Walker Station wines are sold through the website store.
