Highlights

  • A unique 50-50 blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley
  • Specially crafted just for Premiere Napa Valley by our winemaker, Ana Diogo-Draper
  • This blend is a nod to our native and adoptive lands of Spain and California
  • Your sophisticated wine features concentrated flavors of plum, blackberry and boysenberry, and a hint of dry tobacco

Artesa winemaker Ana Diogo-Draper selected her favorite individual barrels to craft your Premiere Napa Valley wine; a one-of-a-kind blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the soul of our first-generation Spanish-American winery. Intense, polished and fleshy dark fruit aromas and flavors of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon blend seamlessly with the velvety, earthy, red berry character of Tempranillo. Aged in French oak and a minimum of two years in bottle, this is a wine crafted to showcase the very best of Napa Valley as only Artesa could do.

Winemaker, Artesa Vineyards & Winery

Winemaker, Ana Diogo-Draper

Born and raised in Portugal, Ana moved to California in 2005 to join the team at Rutherford Hill Winery. In the course of her eight-year tenure she was promoted from harvest intern to Lab Manager, and finally, Assistant Winemaker. She joined the Artesa winemaking team in 2013 as Assistant Winemaker and then Director of Winemaking in 2015. Known for her collaborative approach, she thrives in the fast-paced winery environment and excels at a wide diversity of experience from quality control assurance to creative applications such as sensory analysis and blending.

She credits her professional success to a passion for agriculture and winemaking, nurtured from a young age in Portugal when she first planted vines with family and neighbors immersed in the European tradition of wine appreciation: "I always knew I wanted to do something related to agriculture and nature. For me, "the calling" came once I took my first winemaking class. I enjoy the creative aspect of winemaking "blending is a true alchemy and it has been a thrill to discover what kind of styles and approaches I most enjoy."

Country born: Portugal

Education: Ana holds a B.A. in Agriculture Engineering from the University of Evora, situated in the middle of Portugal's historic cork industry. Her experience with old world winemaking encouraged her to explore new regions and varieties, and to study a broad spectrum of subjects.

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Led by Winemaker Ana Diogo-Draper, the winery employs both traditional and modern techniques to create wines that experience minimal manipulation between harvest and bottling. Fermentations are conducted in both stainless steel and wood vessels, using custom-made French oak barrels. The diversity of blending by parcel and fermentation techniques creates a palate of fruit-driven wines with a complex variety of aromas and flavors. Artesa's state-of-the-art winery, built beneath the ground into a hillside, is kept naturally cool by the constant temperature of the earth surrounding it. The philosophy of winemaking at Artesa is to always be true to the place where the grapes were grown, believing that the best wines are always made in the vineyard, not the winery.
