Saviez Vineyard History

Paul Saviez, a third generation grower, returned to the farming community in 1986 and became the owner of Saviez Vineyards. As he developed and maintained the family acreage, other companies retained him for vineyard management services based on his consistently great results.

Depending on the time of year, Saviez Vineyard Management employs up to 80 people, many of which have been with him since he took the helm. Motivated personnel and great work ethic is the key to Saviez Vineyard Management’s continued success.

Over the years, the Vineyard Management Company has gradually expanded in to a fully operational Vineyard Development Company as well. Currently, Paul handles over 30 different parcels, ranging from backyard vineyards to large commercial vineyards tracts in Napa Valley and the surrounding area. From irrigation systems & fence installation down to planting your vines, we are ready. Throughout the years Saviez Vineyard Management has developed a good working relationship with all of the Vineyard Architectural firms in the area, making for a smooth operation.

With years of development work under his belt, Paul has found that much of the General Engineering work needing to be done is best tackled simultaneously with development. Saviez Vineyard Management has made it a point to have state of the art equipment to handle all of these situations. We even have a General Engineer on staff to complete such projects with efficiency and a keen eye for detail. Need a road? No problem!
