Though reminiscent of how Hospice de Beaune wines are produced, the process is uniquely American. The winemakers take a gloves-off approach, often using varieties they may not bottle as a stand-alone, or perhaps a noted white-wine-only house producing a red wine. These wines are innovative and showcase Napa Valley's sense of exploration in fine winemaking.

It is one-of-a-kind. You will never, even if you try, have the same wine twice. Rolando Herrera
