Originally founded in 1981, Lyeth was one of the first wineries in California to blend Cabernet Sauvignon with the other major Bordeaux varieties.

The winery built a formidable reputation during the 1980s, under the guidance of winemaker Bill Arbois, for the quality of its Cabernet and Merlot blends.

When Burgundian Jean-Charles Boisset purchased the cult winery in 1994, he immediately contacted Bill and brought him back on board.
