Description

Perched on the western reaches of Pritchard Hill at 1,400 feet, OVID. Napa Valley’s vineyard was planted in 2000. 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 MMXXI, is crafted by winemaker Austin Peterson and embraces the paternal tension between its components Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
