In celebration of Premiere Napa Valley 2012, Conn Creek Winery is taking a walk on the wild side! We will be "Howellin' for You" to bid on our Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from an exceptional block of the biodynamically farmed White Cottage Vineyard atop the Howell Mountain AVA. It's no coincidence that the moon will be full the weekend of Premiere Napa Valley this year. This powerful and seductive wine is certain to inspire you to look toward the sky and Howell for more!
