Founder + Proprietor + Vineyard Manager
Kevin moved to Murphys, CA for a career in Forestry in the early 1980's. He started Locke Vineyards in 1995 with his love of Calaveras terrior with his wife, Theresa. He can usually be found driving the tractor while managing both vineyards or building custom furniture with his brothers from local hand milled wood.
Reserve Zinfandel + Ponderosa
Theresa helped start Locke Vineyards with her husband in the 1990's. Growing up on a dairy and orchard outside of Modesto, farming was nothing new to her. We can always count on her to fill in with evening harvest picks and holiday weekends + club events. She spends most of her time operating her Physical Therapy clinic in Angels Camp, CA.
