Winemaker Hans Backhoff earned his doctor's degree in food science from the University of Nottingham, England. After returning to Ensenada, where he had lived as a youth, Backhoff worked for a while in the food industry as a chemist. During this time he developed a local reputation as an accomplished amateur wine maker.
In 1987 a group of investors, including Hans, decided to start a small winery that would produce a limited quantity of premium wines, with Backhoff as a partner and winemaker. While visiting the Valle de Guadalupe, they found what they believed was the ideal site. Thus, 175 acres of vineyard land were purchased, located on the north side of the valley, near to the eastern end, just beyond the village of Francisco Zarco.
Because of their belief that Bordeaux varieties express the character of this land with refinement and distinction, the partners chose to focus their attention on making premium Bordeaux-type red and white wines. In addition, because of the success of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay in the valley, these varieties were included.
