Lake County vineyards and wineries have their own unique history. In 1888, acclaimed British actress Lillie Langtry purchased 4,190 acres in Guenoc Valley near Middletown, which included vineyards that had been planted in 1854. She established the Guenoc & Langtry Estate Winery—today known as Langtry Estate & Vineyards—with their first vintage in 1891.
