Inheritance Vineyards is a family-owned and operated vineyard and winery out of Modesto, California. It began out of a passion for farming. The Beard Family has farmed in California’s fertile central valley for over 100 years. Rodney Beard, the third generation, greatly expanded the family’s farming operation and began growing grapes in a river-fronted estate, located within a unique micro-climate ideal for producing delicious red wines. The family tradition remains. Now in its sixth generation, Inheritance wines are our way of offering the fruit of our passion and experience.
We produce Rhone varietals, Petite Sirah and Syrah as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and delicious blends of all three. We are involved from grape to bottle in the creation of our wines. Carefully harvested, barrel-aged and meticulously crafted, we know wine lovers will enjoy the quality, complexity, and elegance of our family’s wines.
