From our Stella Knight Vineyard

In 2013, the estate vineyard porfolio once again expanded with the purchase of the Stella Knight Vineyard. The 8.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are located in Calistoga, at the base of Diamond Mountain. Although this region is one of the hottest parts of the Napa Valley, the vineyard sits in the shadow of the mountain, allowing the vines to experiences an extraordinary diurnal swing of more than 50°F (10°C). The vineyard is divided into three blocks with various degrees of slope, volcanic bedrock and sediment. Smaller berries with thicker skins bring yet another dimension of Cabernet Sauvignon to our portfolio.
