Our 2018 Premiere Napa Valley offering was created from exquisite fruit from the Oakville Station (part of the historic To Kalon Vineyard) on Highway 29, near the "Welcome to Napa Valley" sign. By blending our Cabernet, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, our wines represent the pinnacle of meticulously handcrafted wines. If you are seeking small lot, ultra-boutique wines, you have come to the right place. Our family winery produces less than 500 cases annually. As a small winery, our attention to detail can’t be surpassed. We age our wine for up to 36 months in custom made, handcrafted French oak barrels. Our family story and winemaking process are extremely unique.
- Wine is unfiltered
