BAKER AND HAMILTON
After his dream of striking gold failed, Bruce Phillips’ great, great grandfather R.M. Hamilton
partnered with L.L. Baker to sell provisions, tools and general supplies to others seeking
fortunes in the gold fields. To honor this mercantile history, the Phillips family is proud to
announce Baker & Hamilton, an exceptional estate-grown wine from Vine Hill Ranch, their
71-acre Oakville vineyard, intended for exclusively for sale within select retail and restaurants.
Source of many legendary Cabernets as well as the VHR, Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet
Sauvignon, Baker & Hamilton is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that highlights the vineyard’s
Oakville benchland fruit. With soft supple tannins, Baker & Hamilton has remarkable depth
and complexity while pairing beautifully with an array of cuisine.
Francoise Peschon, Vinous’ 2021 winemaker of the year and the VHR, Vine Hill Ranch
winemaker crafts the fabulous Baker & Hamilton wine. Releasing only in California through
Urban Wines, we couldn’t be more proud to represent this Oakville treasure.
