We make nine wines every year and separate them into three categories:
First (and for us most importantly!) our own Estate wines from our property on Mt. Veeder;
next our collection of wines from individual vineyards around the Valley,
and finally our ‘second’ wine – an annual blend from Napa Valley.

Situated on the westernmost ridge of Napa Valley, with its oak-studded meadows, hawks, foxes and towering redwoods, few places are as unique as our Châteauneuf-du-Pott on Mt. Veeder.
The concept that a site: its soil and climate have an influence on the character of the wine it produces goes back to the time of the Egyptians where wines were first named for the individual parcels that they came from.
When I craft my wines I am looking for perfection: balance, elegance and the greatest expression of the terroir. During harvest I will often return to pick different parts of the same vineyard on separate days to best capture the expression of the myriad different soil types, exposures and micro-climates.
