Stewart Family Estates is owned by the Stewart Family - a third generation, pioneering, west coast wine family, that has assembled a portfolio of luxury wine brands, including: Madrone Estate Winery (Glen Ellen), Valley of the Moon (Sonoma Valley), Lake Sonoma Winery (Sonoma County), Plume Napa Valley and Quails' Gate - Okanagan Valley (Canada).
The family consistently produces some of North America’s best appellation wines that exceed expectations for quality and value; connect people with unique and distinct, estate wine experiences that delight; and are committed to sustaining a stable, profitable, growing business through the wise, innovative use of resources.
As grape growers, the Stewarts first planted vines in 1961 and bring over a half-century of experience and appreciation for the uniqueness and special qualities of farming premium vineyards and crafting fine wine. Their philosophy has been to do more with less—with a tradition of low impact viticulture practices—and vineyards solely focused on providing the winery team with ripe concentrated fruit that expresses its origin.
Tony Stewart is Chief Executive Officer. His vision and guidance have been instrumental in assembling this fine portfolio of luxury brands; in developing Quails’ Gate as one of Canada’s top culinary and wine destinations while producing wines that have garnered international credibility. A lover of fine wine and regional food influences he believes intently that the winery experience must focus the consumer not only towards the wines but also to the pairing of these wines with local culinary delights.
