The History of Avensole Winery

Inspiration from Sylvia and William Lytton

Avensole Winery traces its roots back to Sylvia and William “Bill” Lytton, whose love for music, wine, and family laid the foundation for the winery. During their travels to Vienna, Austria, Sylvia’s hometown, they were captivated by the enchanting vineyards and centuries-old winemaking traditions. These experiences in Austria inspired and influenced the Lyttons, planting the seed for their future winemaking endeavors.

Love for Music and Family

Sylvia and Bill’s deep passion for music brought them together, and their love for music continued throughout their marriage. Sylvia, a talented pianist, and Bill, an accomplished musician, shared a profound bond over their shared musical interests. Their love for music and family shaped the Lytton legacy, passing down a profound appreciation for the arts and creativity.

The Vision of Sheldon and Maribeth Lytton

Building upon their parents’ love for wine and tradition, Sheldon and Maribeth Lytton worked tirelessly to fulfill their vision. Sheldon pursued a career in law, while Maribeth became a renowned concert pianist. However, their shared memories of family vacations in Austria and the beauty of the Temecula Valley inspired them to establish their winery.

Today, Avensole Vineyard & Winery stands as a tribute to Bill, Sylvia, and Sheldon’s memories. With every bottle of wine we produce, we honor the Lytton Family’s vision and the rich heritage of winemaking.
