Weston Eidson

Winemaker, Silver Ghost

Winemaker, Weston Eidson

Winemaker Weston Eidson has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and a devotion to quality. His great-grandfather, John Montagu, was an automobile pioneer at the turn of the last century. Being a British Lord and a Member of Parliament, he was instrumental in much early automotive legislation and was friends with Charles Rolls and Henry Royce. His assistant served as the model for the Rolls-Royce hood ornament, the Spirit of Ecstasy, which we still see on Rolls-Royce cars to this day. Silver Ghost gets its name from John Montagu’s favorite car, the 1909 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

Weston’s Silver Ghost Napa Cabernet is a result of passion, hard work and an appreciation for fine wine. Family get-togethers and celebrations were never complete without it. While attending graduate school in the UK, he traveled around the world visiting as many wine regions as he could, from Chile and South Africa to Bordeaux, Alsace and the Veneto.

Weston’s travels eventually took him to Napa Valley where he met Jason Moore of Modus Operandi Cellars. Under Moore’s guidance, Weston worked the 2012 harvest and quickly garnered invaluable winemaking skills. Weston has since learned from mentor Russell Bevan and developed a conviction for making rich wine with minimal intervention – allowing the fruit to express its full potential while crafting wine that naturally reflects its distinct terroir.
