Black Coyote


Named after an actual black coyote that has been seen roaming our own Bates Creek vineyard in Napa Valley, this beloved winery is the result of five partners, Dr. Ernest A. Bates, Dr. Olin Robison, Jack Ruffle, Stanley S. Trotman Jr. and Vanessa Robledo, and their appretiation for the quality of life that is synonymous with Napa Valley. The pursuit of fine wine is a passionate mission for each “Black Coyote”.

Dr. Bates is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the University of Rochester School of Medicine. Active in leading professional medical societies, Dr. Bates has also contributed chapters to the publication, Textbook on Brain Tumors and Black Related Diseases. He is a frequent guest speaker at medical organizations and business conferences. An African American neurosurgeon, Dr. Bates is well known for his community involvement and philanthropic work.Ernest A. Bates, M.D., founder of American Shared Hospital Services, has served in the positions of Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer since the incorporation of the Company in 1977.
