From our Oakville Vineyards

We work with two growers in the Oakville AVA to produce our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2014 we began purchasing fruit from UC Davis sourced from The Old Federal Vineyard which is perhaps the most significant vineyard in the state if not the world. It has contributed more to our industry's understanding of viticulture than any other vineyard. Located on the north side of Oakville Grade the Oakville Research Station began with Hiram Crabb and the California Viticulture Commissioners in the 1880s. Beginning in 2016 we added fruit from the 80 acre Lincoln Creek Vineyard located between Highway 29 on the west and the Napa River on the east. It is named for a small creek that cuts through the middle of the vineyard and adds texture to the final wine.
