Story

Located among 45 acres of historic vineyard in St. Helena, Napa Valley along the Silverado Trail, Titus Vineyards is a 2nd generation, family-owned and farmed estate that produces high quality grapes for limited production Napa Valley wines. A partnership between the vineyard and the surrounding environment, Titus Vineyards is also a partnership between the generation of the family that planted the estate and the generation that now farms it, a philosophy that is epitomized by the hard work of two men, brothers Eric (grape grower) and Phillip Titus (winemaker).

Although the core of the Andronicus blends stem out of the Titus Vineyards Estate by sourcing from friends Eric & Phillip Titus are able to deliver wines of incredible quality at affordable prices. Being raised in the Napa Valley means more than a great zip code; it means forging relationships with others growing up in wine country. This is how the Titus brothers have old ties to farmers growing grapes on some of the best vineyard sites across the Napa Valley. And thanks to these relationships, the Andronicus wines are as deep & rich as the family values & history they were produced from.


Believing that it takes great grapes to make great wines, the brothers aim to create red wines that reflect the family's personal sense of taste and style–full bodied and well balanced. By blending complementary varietals, Titus Vineyards creates wines that are distinctive and balanced, fusing the classic varietal characteristics with the vineyard location.


The name Andronicus is a combination of the Greek words andreios (manly, masculine) and nike (victory) translating to “victorious warrior.”
