5 cases produced

Chimney Rock Winemaker Elizabeth Vianna took the unfiltered approach for Premiere Napa Valley 2013. Chimney Rock Winery has a reputation for presenting the beauty of the Stags Leap District appellation by producing 100% estate-grown wines. For the delight of the 2013 bidders Elizabeth offers a specialized lot of unfined/unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon from the Ganymede vineyard block, which contains some of the oldest vines on the estate. While a limited amount of Ganymede Cabernet is occasionally bottled to share with winery’s guests and club members, Elizabeth took her winemaking to a new level of purity by leaving the wine in its rugged, voluptuous, unfiltered form for Premiere Napa Valley. Enjoy the power and grace of this amazing creation.

Winemaker, Chimney Rock Winery

Winemaker, Elizabeth Vianna

My experience as a winemaker began with two wonderful internships, the first at Trefethen Vineyards and the second at Chimney Rock Winery, more than a decade ago. I then went on to Napa Wine Company for a few years as lab director and assistant winemaker, where I learned much from some amazing winemakers in this valley. I was fortunate enough to work closely with Heidi Barret, Celia Macyzek, Erin Green and Pam Starr, among many other inspiring women in wine. I then returned to Chimney Rock as assistant winemaker in 2002 and was eventually promoted to winemaker.

Country born: Brazil

Education: Masters degree in enology U.C. Davis

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Honors / Awards:
Commencement speaker, University of California-Davis School of Graduate Studies, 2009

Winemaking Philosophy:
My goal is to create wines with great texture and to have those wines represent the vineyards from which they are born. The tactile experience is just as important as the aroma and flavor. More specifically, my goal as winemaker at Chimney Rock is to highlight and honor the strengths of the amazing Cabernet we grow in Stags Leap District.
