The Turnbull name goes back to the early 1300's when a court member of Robert the Bruce saved the king’s life by turning away a ferocious bull which had threatened to gore the king. The grateful king dubbed his subject “Turnbull” and awarded him a crest featuring a bull’s head twisted back, with the motto: Audaci Favet Fortuna, or “Fortune Favors the Bold.”
In the spring of 1993, Patrick O’Dell purchased the winery named Johnson Turnbull Vineyards and renamed the property Turnbull Wine Cellars. At this time the image of the turning bull on the label was redesigned. The newer image is derived from a bull’s figure on a Minoan drinking vessel. The crest continues to be embossed on each label, reflecting our respect for the history of the distinguished Turnbull name.
