Jones Family Vineyard
Terroir: On the eastern hillsides of Howell Mountain, Jones Family Vineyard spans 10-acres of sloping vineyards. This site’s steep terrain and rocky volcanic soil create ideal conditions for growing structured Cabernet Sauvignon.
Estate: The Jones Family Vineyards are Certified Napa Valley Green. The Jones Family produces brilliantly balanced varietals by nurturing and giving back to their land.
Sleeping Lady Vineyard
Terroir: Named for a unique formation of foothills that look like a woman sleeping on her side, Sleeping Lady Vineyard is situated on 46-acres of West Benchland in the Mayacamas Mountains. Sleeping Lady benefits from the distinctively cool microclimate of the Yountville AVA – an area renowned for producing highly tannic Cabernet Sauvignon varietals. We love the aromatic floral notes, strong tannins, and natural elegance of the Cabernet Sauvignon we source from this site.
Estate: Remarkable in its beauty and the Grand Cru quality of its grapes, Sleeping Lady Vineyard is owned and managed by Giancarlo Bettinelli (son of legendary Winemaker Larry Bettinelli). A heritage Vineyard, Sleeping Lady has a reputation for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon in the world.
Barking Dog Vineyard
Terroir: Influenced by San Pablo and San Francisco Bay, Barking Dog benefits from cooling winds, early morning fog, and diverse soils ideal for viticulture. The rocky volcanic soils of Barking Dog’s 10-acre appellation Vineyard create natural drainage and allow vines to form deep root systems.
Estate: Nestled in the farmlands of Coombsville, owners Larry and Beverley Thomson were among the first in Napa Valley to plant Bordeaux varietal Merlot. Aromatic, bright, and naturally acidic, the Merlot we source from Barking Dog Vineyard helps to create our truly show-stopping Napa Valley Red Blend.
