Hexameter is the meter in which Ovid wrote his epic work, Metamorphoses. Inspired by the idea of a wine with six classical components, we created a blend of six lots of estate-grown wine from our Pritchard Hill vineyard expressly for Premiere Napa Valley. 2010 was a year in which our Cabernet Sauvignon was especially rich, dense and pure, and the six components speak as one to create a wine with rhythm, lyricism and verve.
Winemaker, Ovid. Napa Valley
My experience with wine begins as far back as I can remember, working in cellars and walking vineyards in Napa and Sonoma with my father. Since then I have been blessed to work with tremendously talented people in France, South Africa, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and, of course, Napa.
