Our idyllic location just off the Silverado Trail gives us the coveted combination of abundant sunlight and a temperate climate, ideal conditions for growing red Bordeaux varietals. Southern Napa is impacted by maritime fog, so the vineyards here tend to be cooler than those in northern Napa. William Hill is a notable exception. The southwestern exposure of our estate means more sunlight for our vines. Our grapes ripen beautifully under these conditions, yielding exceptional color and flavor in our wines.
Our location also affords us the luxury of tapping into some of the world's most renowned Chardonnay vineyards. Once we hand select our Chardonnay grapes from Carneros and other nearby appellations, we bring them into the winery within minutes to begin our gentle winemaking process.
