Owner Kieu Hoang, the founder of a successful pharmaceuticals company, immigrated to the United States from Vietnam in the mid 1970s. He established his eponymous winery in 2012, primarily exporting wines to Asia. He later purchased the Carneros property, formerly known as the Michael Mondavi Family Estate, from the Mondavi family. The acquisition of the Carneros property positioned the winery to sell its wines to the domestic market, in addition to making wines for export.

Nordby Construction undertook a full renovation of the property, taking the interior down to the studs to install new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Interior walls were taken out and re-positioned to create a greater sense of interior space, enhancing the flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. Newly relocated ducting accommodates a more symmetrical organization of space, and new windows and doors usher in light.

The new VIP tasting area to the rear of the structure is visually connected to the main hospitality space, but given a subtle sense of separation, with its lower ceiling height creating a more intimate space. New casework throughout was designed by the architects and built by local cabinet maker WNT Design. On the exterior, Nordby installed new siding and exterior finishes. New terraces and landscaping complete the indoor-outdoor experience, anchored by heritage olive trees, which provide focal points in the courtyard.
