Bench Blend Collection
Overview

Among our best wines, the bottlings in our Bench Blend Collection illustrate the quintessential characteristics of Napa Valley: lush, expressive fruit. These wines are soft, elegant and beautifully integrated, melding grapes from hand selected vineyard blocks that deliver intense flavor characteristics. They are a testament to the extraordinary vineyards of southern Napa.

With our estate vineyard right outside the winery door - and some of the world's most prestigious Chardonnay vineyards just up the road from William Hill - our winemaker Ralf Holdenried spends much of his time carving out specific vineyard blocks for his best wines. Ralf then ferments each lot separately, affording him the ultimate luxury of letting each vineyard block develop fully. He then blends the finest lots to create his Bench Blend wines.
