Newton Vineyard is a wine estate in St. Helena in the Napa Valley of California.

Description[edit]

Newton Vineyard was the second wine estate established by Peter and Su Hua Newton. Their first (Sterling Vineyards) was sold to soft drinks giant Coca-Cola in the 1970s. Part of Newton was sold to LVMH in 2001.[1]

Newton Vineyard is still operated by the Newton family though overseeing control rests with the Veuve Cliquot division of LVMH.

Wines[edit]

Newton is most famous for its Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay. It is one of the "World's Greatest Wine Estates" per Robert Parker.[2] Parker gave the 2005 Unfiltered Chardonnay 96 points on his 100-point scale.[3]
