Diane and Ron Miller started their journey in the 1970’s with the purchase of their first vineyards. “It was beautiful land, and it was land that was working,” says Diane Miller.
The Millers sold their grapes to some of Napa’s best vintners, who made award winning wines from them year after year. Encouraged by the success of their grapes, Diane and Ron established Silverado Vineyards in 1981 with the goal of making the best wines the estate could produce and offering it at a fair price. Since the beginning, Silverado Vineyards has maintained a strong commitment to community through its business practices and farming practices.
Good wine is about people, from every hand that helps create their Cabernet to every current and future friend who lifts a glass of it around the dinner table. The Millers believe their success is due to their community and they feel strongly about being a good neighbor. Even the winery’s name, Silverado, is a nod to local Napa culture and comes from the abandoned mining town at the top of the Napa Valley. Silverado Vineyards values its people and ensures better than Napa average compensation, comprehensive benefits and flexible schedules. The Millers also donate time, money and wine to over 70 organizations annually that need help keeping their communities safe, healthy, learning and enjoying the pleasures of artistic endeavor.
