The BRYTER Estates 2016 Premiere Napa Valley lot hails from The Georges III Vineyard, situated in the heart of Rutherford where the alluvial soil and volcanic base is considered heaven for Cabernet Sauvignon vines.

Kari describes herself as a hands-on winemaker and has expertise in all aspects of the process from vineyard to bottle. Her style is all about rolling up her sleeves and staying intimately involved with every step of the intricate process, from vineyard sourcing and hands-on berry sorting to the myriad details of winemaking, sensory analysis and the infinitely nuanced art and science of blending. If she is not tasting barrel samples in the winery, she is probably out kicking the dirt in a vineyard.
