In 1996, Steven Kent Mirassou set out to establish a new winery in the Livermore Valley, located just southeast of the San Francisco Bay. There were only a handful of other producers in the area at the time, but Steven believed in the potential for success in the region.  Now, almost twenty years later, The Steven Kent Winery is flourishing and earning the valley plenty of acclaim for its world class California-Bordeaux.
