Meticulous Winemaking

We produce wines that reflect the purity, complexity and character of grapes grown exclusively from the Napanook vineyard. This unique provenance qualifies our wines as estate-bottled, a rarely found designation.

The character of a wine is defined by the grapes at harvest. With our extensive efforts in the vineyard, once we have the grapes in hand, our winemaking practice is minimalist:

  • Thorough cluster sorting by hand.
  • Optical sorting of berries.
  • Gentle pump-overs delicately extract aromas, color, tannin, and reveal the personality of each lot.
  • Hand-racking barrel to barrel every three months using the esquive.
