In 1980 Dick Godwin and his wife Rickie bought the Sonoma County property that was to become Moss Oak Vineyard, located within a spectacular 144-acre ranch off Chalk Hill Road in the Alexander Valley. They became involved in the Sonoma County wine community and were dedicated to farming their land with the idea that someday they would produce wines under their family label. The first Godwin ‘Moss Oak’ Merlot was released in 2001 to numerous awards and critical acclaim.

The Godwin's sold their Moss Oak property in 2002, however the family continues their commitment to producing world-class Sonoma County wines. Under the direction of their son Kent and renowned and founding Godwin winemaker Kerry Damskey, Godwin Family Vineyards now produces small quantities of two luxury varietals—Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Sonoma Valley Merlot. Kerry is recognized on four continents for his acuity and focus in creating brilliant wines and his talent as a winemaker lies in his ability to create a unique statement from a vineyard. Superior wines are created when the elements of soil and climate are integrated with the winemaker's skill.
