THE NAPA VALLEY COLLECTION
Our Napa Valley vineyards benefit from the cooling influence of the San Pablo Bay in the southern part of Napa Valley making it ideal for growing Chardonnay while the warmer longer, growing season in the eastern part of Napa Valley is ideal for growing Sauvignon Blanc and other red varietals.
