Our winery is now part of the newest chapter in the rich history of the Livermore Valley.

Longevity Wines is a small boutique, family operated, industrial style winery located in the Livermore AVA. Our focus is on quality not quantity.

Each vineyard site we work with is much more than a place to grow grapes. It is the physical manifestation of the visions and hard work of the people who own and farm them. Each shares an abiding passion for the land and for his fruit, and each has become a valued partner in La Rochelle's effort to reveal the many beautiful faces of Pinot Noir.

Descendants of fifteen generations of farmers, owner, winemaker and student of Livermore Valley History John Kinney and his family have always been aware of the fleeting nature of opportunity. Beginning in school when his debate teacher introduced him to the Latin phrase Occasio aegre offertur, facile amittitur, John realized those were the words to live by – to know that the right moment comes along rarely and is easily lost.

“Our wines are all estate. The flavors reflect the terroir of our vineyard, the age of our vines and the character of the grapes. Our trademark is a long, elegant finish.” Gloria Taylor
At Rodrigue Molyneaux, we believe that the great wine must come from great grapes. The farming of our grapes requires intensive monitoring of the watering and pruning techniques. These farming practices keeps the yield down to three tons or less per acre. Although the yield will be smaller, the grapes will be larger with more fruit flavor. This is the reason Rodrigue Molyneaux red wines are so robust with a fruit-driven complex flavor.
BoaVentura wines are truly handmade. The grapes are hand-picked by family and friends, and Brett and Monique take pride in crafting wines that BoaVentura Baptiste de Caires would be proud of. After all, his spirit is manifested in the name of the winery, Boa Ventura, or “Good Venture.”
The best part of our wine is the fact that they are estate designated wines, so we have control from start to finish. The winery has low yields, which allows for the grapes to be considered “super-premium grapes.” The Petite Sirah yields 3 tons an acre while the Cabernet and Merlot yield 4 tons an acre. “Our wines have a minimum of 5 rackings and we top the barrels every two weeks” in our wine making process.
