Prior to founding O'Neill
Vintners & Distillers, Jeff
O'Neill was President and
Chief Executive Officer of
Golden State Vintners (GSV)
from 1986 to 2004. Under
his direction, GSV expanded
from a single winery location
in the Central Valley into a
vertically-integrated grower,
producer and bottler of wine
and wine-related products
throughout California. GSV
operated seven production
facilities across the state,
owned over
10,000 acres
of p remi e r
vineyards and
shipped bulk
w i n e
a n d
case goods
to more than
30 countries
around
the
world. At the
time of the company's sale
in 2004, Golden State
Vintners was the fifth largest
winery in the U.S. with
sales over $100 million and
the leading custom wine
producer serving the
industry. O'Neill is a graduate
from the University of the
Pacific School of Business.
Our selection is a ripe, round
racy offering with delicious
aromas and juicy flavors of
fresh apple, peach, pear
and lemon. Balanced with
creamy overtones and a
slight touch of oak for a
refreshing,
memorable
finish. A great pairing with
seared scallops or smoked
turkey.
ackstory has a unique
approach as to how
they chose the name.
Each year, a new chapter
unfolds in the vineyards.
Long warm days and
constant nurturing, gives
way to the frenzied excite-
ment of harvest. Early dawn
brings rushing feet, busy
clippers and bins swelled
with ripe fruit hurried to the
waiting cellar. There, the
winemaker’s patient hand
and the judicious use of oak
transform into
finished wine.
Every
wine
has a back
story, a place
where bold
experiences are
born and a rich
storyline sets
a g a i n s t
a
backdrop that
unfolds as it progresses. In
the case of a true classic
backstory, the finish will
leave you wanting more.
Backstory is produced by
O'Neill Vintners, which was
founded in 2004 by Jeff
O'Neill, a third generation
member of a California
winemaking family with
roots dating back to 1934.
From grape supply through
wine processing to bottling
services, O'Neill is recognized
as the preferred outsourcing
partner for many of the
world's leading beverage
alcohol companies and
brand owners. Today, O'Neill
Vintners has grown to
become the 8th largest
U.S. winery and has earned
a reputation as one of
the premier custom wine
producers in California.
