My Home Vineyard has designed, installed, planted and managed over 600 vineyards in the Southern California area, ranging from Bel Air to San Diego to the High Desert and as far east as Palm Desert. It was founded by George Walker, who moved from Indiana to Rancho Cucamonga, California in 2000. Motivated by his new home’s rich heritage for vineyard growing and wine making (the Cucamonga Valley), he passionately attained his own vineyard growing and winemaking dreams.
At the start of 2017, George turned over the vineyard business to his hard working and very entrepreneurial son, Clayton. Clayton has been around winemaking and vineyard planting since he was a toddler. As a young man, he developed his vineyard knowledge and skills while working summers with the vineyard business. Now, after having installed more than 100 vineyards on his own over the past couple of years, Clayton is poised to take his home vineyard business to new heights, bringing the dream of owning a vineyard to more families in Southern California and beyond.
Clayton’s dad continues to assist with the vineyard business in an advisory capacity. But make no mistake, Clayton is the brain behind what has become a very successful, fun, and growing venture.
