My (ad)venture in wine seems to me to be a natural progression of history. As a third generation Napa farmer, I have been influenced all my life by my forebears' lives in agriculture. They have left, as part of their legacy, their deep and abiding affinity for the land from which came not only their livelihood, but also a life full of purpose. I am hopeful I can transfer that way of life to yet another generation.
Given this legacy, one does not continue farming for dispassionate reasons alone—there are easier ways to make a living.
And thus, taking the next step and putting one’s name on a bottle of wine does not come lightly.
All our wines are produced in small quantities, with the careful attention to farming my forebears would expect. I hope you will try one or more of my wines and let me know if you agree.
