White Wine
Mount Veeder

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • A rarely seen Napa Valley white Rhône blend sourced from our estate vineyard on Mount Veeder
  • A unique blend consisting of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier
  • Non-malolactic and naturally fermented in a mix of concrete, stainless steel and French oak barrels
  • Expect exotic bouquets along with balance and elegance on the palate

Traditionally focusing on producing elegant small production Cabernet Sauvignons, Progeny Estate Winery is the newest gem within the Mt. Veeder appellation. We are proud to participate in Premiere Napa Valley for the first time offering an extremely limited and unique white Rhone cuvee. With only a few acres planted to Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier, these exceptional varietals were held out from our regular bottling to create this enticing and rare wine. The low nutrient soils on the South Western slopes render shallow and rocky top soil creating a stressed environment for the grapes. The results reward us with distinctive flavor profiles, complexity and intensity that is exclusive to this superb appellation.

Winemaker, Progeny Winery

Winemaker, Sean Capiaux

Sean Capiaux, has deftly established his impressive and notable career over the past 21 years at prominent wineries around the globe. He graduated from California State University, Fresno (BS, Enology; minor in Chemistry) in the late 80's. Sean then began his career at Jordan Winery in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. He joined the Houghton Winery located outside Perth for one harvest. Sean then returned to the United States as assistant winemaker at Pine Ridge Winery in the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley. Two years later the Peter Michael Winery in Calistoga tapped Sean as the assistant winemaker.

In 1994, Sean launched his own label, Capiaux Cellars, which has garnered favorable reactions among professional reviewers, a cadre of restaurateurs, and consumers. In 1996, Sean moved temporarily to New York so his wife could attend Cornell University. As a bicoastal winemaker, Sean continued to produce Capiaux Cellars Pinot Noir in California, while working as the winemaker for Macari Vineyards, Jamesport Vineyards and Schneider Vineyards on the north Fork of Long Island.

Sean serves as winemaker for the Progeny Estate Winery and consistently creates world class mountain Cabernets. Sean describes his winemaking style as neo-classic in that he employs modern equipment to produce non-interventious wines which are naturally fermented and bottled unfined and unfiltered. These techniques allow the varietal character and terroir of the Progeny Estate to be the stars of the show.
