Meet the Owners 

Randy and Lisa Lynch came to wine through their travels in Italy, where the fruit of the vine is typically a complement to a meal-not the centerpiece. When their growing passion for fine food and wine led them to plant acreage in Napa Valley, Randy and Lisa decided to create a red wine that would easily find a place at the dinner table. Maximus, named after the wine loving, 2nd century Roman Emperor Magnus Maximus, became their initial bottling.

Prior to purchasing Bennett Lane, Randy built a successful marketing company in San Ramon, just east of San Francisco. He also has a passion for fast cars, which he raced when he was younger.
