Perched on the western reaches of Pritchard Hill at 1,400 ft., OVID. Napa Valley was planted in MM. Our organically farmed, 15-acre vineyard is divided into one-acre blocks with rootstock and clonal combinations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. OVID’s rocky red, volcanic soils and west-facing blocks yield focused and long-lived wines. In our effort to best capture a sense-of-place, we work tirelessly in the vineyard to ensure that the winemaking is as simple and transparent as possible. Our Premiere Napa Valley offering, entitled MMXVIII, is crafted by winemaker Austin Peterson and embraces the paternal tension between its components Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The winery’s name was inspired by the Roman poet, Publius Ovidius Naso, whose Metamorphoses is a poetic narrative of the Greek myths, celebrating themes of transformation and change. “Omnia mutantur, nihil interit ... the more things change, the more they stay the same.” - Ovid
