Overview

The Ackerman’s Napa story started with their wedding in April 1989 when they were married at Auberge du Soliel in Rutherford. As they looked out over the beautiful, romantic vineyard countryside, they vowed that, someday, they would live in the Napa Valley. That day came in 1994 when Bob was looking to purchase a horse for Lauren, an avid rider. It just so happened that the horse he found was located on a beautiful 16-acre vineyard property in the eastern hills of Napa that was also for sale. Karma being what it is, the Ackerman’s bought the house and vineyard and were given the horse as part of the deal – their new life in the Napa Valley became a reality. 11 years of Ackerman bottle history Since that fortuitous day, Lauren finished up her consulting practice and began volunteering with various local non-profits in the Napa community. When time permits, she enjoys riding her horses through the vineyards as well as breeding and showing quarter horses and western pleasure paints. When not tending to his vines and the winemaking process, Bob works as a managing director at the venture capital firm he founded. Their sons, Robert, 25, who recently graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and is now an officer on a destroyer, and Alex, 13, who is a budding winemaker and connoisseur, grew up appreciating life in the vineyards. Both sons learned to recognize the subtle flavors of the grapes as they matured on the vine and both were involved where possible in the winemaking process. Alex, already an entrepreneur like his father, stays busy with his organic egg-farming business called "Alex's Eggzactly Organic” where he tends to his two dozen chickens.
