Grapes and Vineyards
Our team selects the highest quality grapes from among California’s best vineyards and appellations, where all the grapes are sustainably farmed and grown. Each location produces world-class fruit and is cultivated by top viticulturists with a passion for quality. The grapes from these vineyards have a long-standing tradition of becoming world-class wines that routinely receive ratings in the mid-90s and above.
As responsible stewards of our earth’s environment and the health of future generations, we apply sustainability throughout of our wine making process. Our wines are made in a sustainable winery facility from sustainably farmed grapes without the use of synthetic pesticides. We invite you to enjoy our wine and protect our environment with us!
One of the largest, most beautiful and highly acclaimed vineyards from which we source, Stagecoach climbs between 900 and 1700 feet up the southern face of Pritchard Hill to Atlas Peak. The site is planted to a wide range of varietals and root stocks and features several distinct micro climates. Our Cabernet Franc is from the most sought after section – Block I. This stretch of vines is lower-yielding than most of the vineyard thus giving explosive aromatics and rich fruit. Stagecoach Vineyard is rich in story, rock and perennial high scoring wines.
BROKEN ROCK VINEYARD
Broken Rock is strategically placed just off Silverado Trail at the foot of Atlas Peak. Western exposure on the slope provides plenty of ripening afternoon sun, thus delivering the best of both worlds – brawny hillside structure and rich valley floor flavor. Elite vineyard designer & operator, Bill Hill, owns Broken Rock. The fields he has developed are consistently found in the WS Top 100.
PICTURE BOOK VINEYARD
Picture Book Vineyard is nestled east of Rutherford at the foot of the Vaca Range. The 7 acre property sits atop well-draining volcanic and rocky-gravel soils. Where some properties on the eastern side of the Valley are noted for sledgehammer interpretations of the grape, Picture Book tells a different story. The unique microclimate, noted for ripening warm sun, is tempered by howling early evening winds which cause the vines to shutdown, thus enabling the grapes to assert a classic Cabernet acid/tannin profile. Those seeking balance, restraint and elegance will be drawn to Picture Book.
