Honorary Wine


Silver Oak began over a handshake between two friends with a bold vision: focus on one varietal, cabernet sauvignon, aged exclusively in American oak and worthy of cellaring for decades to come.

Raymond Twomey Duncan, a Colorado entrepreneur who began investing in California vineyards in the late 1960s and Justin Meyer, a winemaker and former Christian Brother, began in a Napa Valley dairy barn in 1972, producing only 1,100 cases of their inaugural vintage.

Over the next two decades, Silver Oak wines grew in popularity. Their Napa Valley and Alexander Valley cabernets sold quickly and became a sought-after staple on restaurant wine lists around the country.

With David R. Duncan serving as President and CEO and Tim Duncan as Executive Vice President, the Duncan family continues to operate the winery to this day.
