Jeff Roberts is the founder and owner of Farm West, an ultra-premium estate farming company. Launched in 2009, Farm West was the realization of Jeff’s twenty-year dream to have a farming company dedicated to growing the best fruit possible. Early experiences working at Joseph Phelps Vineyards and Conn Valley Vineyards ignited Jeff’s lifelong passion for grape growing, which is reflected in his exceptional attention to detail, from the vine to the bottle. He spent 13 years at Duckhorn Vineyards as Estate Vineyard Manager and Director of Grower Relations, where he launched Duckhorn Farming, a 180-acre vineyard farming operation. Jeff also served as a director of the Napa Valley Grape Growers Association for nine years and holds a degree in Viticulture and Winery Technology from Napa Valley College.
Farm West currently farms just over 75 acres of ultra-premium vineyards in the Napa Valley, focusing on Jeff’s favorite place to grow grapes – the east side bench along the Silverado Trail from Calistoga to Napa. Farm West’s focus is on precision, sustainable viticulture with an emphasis on service, and true “vine to bottle” quality and value for its clients.
