A New Era for Napa Valley and Beyond

Fine wine is more than what is poured into a glass. It is an expression of values and experiences. It is a link between past and present. It is a deeply rooted articulation of place, enhanced by the mastery of process and passion of the people who farm the fruit, enhance its qualities, and share the results with the world. It is heritage that defines special wine estates and inspires our founders, Master Sommelier and Managing Partner Carlton McCoy and the Lawrence family. Established in 2020, Demeine Estates tells the stories behind family-owned wineries and honors their legacies.

“We wanted to create a company that attracts best in class producers that are passionate about Fine Wine.”
Carlton McCoy Jr., Managing Partner and Founder
