About Our San Francisco Bay Area Urban Winery

Old Tradition
New Paradigm

In 2003, Covenant founders Jeff Morgan and Leslie Rudd were inspired to bring a new California perspective to a 3500-year-old winemaking tradition. What started as a 500-case Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon project has now grown more than ten-fold. Today, Covenant’s 9,000-square-foot urban winery is situated in Berkeley, California, also home to other urban wineries.

Tasting California Wine:

Covenant’s exceptional growers and vineyards.

Covenant works closely with family-run vineyards all over California, many of which have been growing grapes for generations. Focusing on sustainable and organic vineyards, we have long-standing relationships with growers in Napa Valley, Los Carneros, Sonoma County, Bennett Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Dry Creek Valley and Sonoma Valley, Lake County, Santa Maria Valley, and the Santa Rita Hills.


Our journey began with a vision to create wines that naturally celebrate the beauty and diversity of the land while celebrating our values. Embracing minimal-intervention techniques, we carefully nurture our vineyards, producing the best California wine while still honoring Mother Nature.

The Covenant Crew

At our winery in Berkeley, the Covenant team is akin to an extended family, with some of us being actual relatives! The production and marketing teams work closely, often enjoying shared lunches under the warm California sun in our wine tasting patio. Over time, we’ve not only grown as a business but also as friends. Together we celebrate each other’s joy and share personal anecdotes while enjoying a bottle of wine every day at lunch. It’s our sincere wish that our wines foster the same sense of camaraderie that we cherish within the winery, extending to dinner tables around the globe.
