The Estate

It was never clear how this adventure was going to turn out. In the late 60’s when my family started to grow wine grapes in Napa Valley, there was no one to show them the way. There was plenty of advice, to be sure, but in truth no one had started a successful Napa vineyard since Prohibition. They were, in a word, crazy.

Wine Making

The growing season began early after a very dry winter that included only half of our typical rainfall. The summer was sunny and pleasant, our warmest since 2003, and the harvest began a few weeks earlier than usual

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with dry cheeses and lean or cured meats. Earthy vegetables like squash, mushrooms, garlic, and onions pair exquisitely, as well as fall fruit, like figs and cranberries.
