In 1981, Lorimar Studios of Hollywood approached Robbins with an offer to film a television series at Miravalle about the Napa Valley, to be entitled “Vintage Years’. The pilot was a success and the series was begun, renamed Falcon Crest. The Victorian home of Tiburcio Parrott soon became one of the most famous residences in the world.
While the TV series made the property famous, Robbins continued to make wonderful wines through the 1980s. In 1992, the property was purchased by its current owner.
A large inventory of wine of the Robbins era was acquired with the property. These older vintages have been placed in a library where they remain a testament to the great winemaking and resurgence of the wine industry in the 1970's and 1980's. Several of these historic library vintages are for sale on a limited basis.
