The Master Family, Charlie, Mel and Janie, founded Tortoise Creek in 1997 partnering with small, sustainable growers to produce wonderfully balanced and structured wines at great values. They named it after a beautiful creek they would often visit on their vineyard property which was a home to a family of tortoises.

In 2004 the Masters joined forces with the Sager Family, longtime friends and associates, and together set out to produce truly exceptional wines from California’s best regions, while upholding the original philosophy of making wines true to origin and character.
