Moraga Estate was created by Tom Jones in 1983 at his home in Bel Air, California, a wealthy suburb of Los Angeles. Due to its unique location in one of the highest priced neighbourhoods in America, the cost per acre here made their vineyard one of the most expensive estates on a cost per acre of any vineyard in the world! The winery takes its name from the street the estate is located on.
Although it was not his original idea to turn his home into vineyard, when he first purchased the property. In fact it took a few decades to create the winery, having originally purchased the sprawling estate in 1959 from the famous, Academy Award winning, movie director, Victor Fleming.
