In 2009, and with their children grown and involved in their own careers, Alice and David Alkosser began to realize their magnetic attraction to the Napa Valley. They had visited Napa Valley often over the years and each time they yearned to own “a property just for the fun of it with a picturesque view of someone else’s vineyards.” Then they discovered what would become Shadybrook Estate in the Coombsville area with its magical hillside panorama and sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and valley below.
Upon purchasing the property they immediately dedicated themselves to the restoration and rehabilitation of the vineyards under the able leadership of viticulturalist Tom Prentice and vineyard manager Mario Bazán. Then with the purchase a year later of a second vineyard property to the south, the process continued with the same team in place and an ambitious plan to replant that vineyard to augment the varietal and clonal diversity of the original.
On February 1st of 2016, David and Alice purchased the Chateau Lane Winery at Rapp Ranch. This hidden gem is located at the end of Second Ave in the newest and exciting AVA of Coombsville.
The Alkossers have big plans for the property and have renamed the property after their award winning brand Shadybrook Estate. Our team is looking forward to sharing the spectacular Shadybrook Estate experiences with you!
