Our Story

After a careful and patient search for a vineyard property in Napa Valley, the Steffens family concluded their quest with the purchase of a forty-acre estate atop Spring Mountain. Planted in the early 1980s with eight acres each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, the property met the family’s stringent requirements for sustainably growing premium grapes, enabling them to craft wines with a true sense of place.

Founded in 1999, Vineyard 7 & 8 is named after proprietor Launny Steffens’s life and background in finance, reflecting a theme of numerics and a keen interest in numerology. The number seven symbolizes luck in Western culture, while eight signifies prosperity and happiness in Eastern culture. Vineyard 7 & 8 embodies the family’s pursuit of producing fine wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, showcasing the unique terroir of their estate.
