De Loach Vineyards was started in 1975 by Cecil and Christine De Loach, and was one of the first wineries established in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California.[1]

The winery ran into financial difficulties in late 2001 due to over-expansion and poor market conditions.[2] The winery's peak production was 250,000 cases. In May 2003, De Loach Vineyards filed bankruptcy.[3] The Boisset family of Burgundy, France purchased De Loach in November 2003.[4] In 2005 Cecil and Christine De Loach started a new winery, Hook & Ladder.[5][6] In May 2005, Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane purchased Hartman Lane Vineyards and Winery, an 18-acre property and winery facility in the Russian River Valley AVA from Cecil De Loach,[7] to start Benovia Winery.
