10span

Sourced from select cool-climate vineyards along California¹s Central Coast, 10SPAN fine wines showcase the best of Monterey County and Santa Barbara County. Home to the vineyards that comprise 10SPAN wines, the region¹s cool ocean breezes form from the Pacific Ocean and follow through to the coastal mountains to cultivate distinct microclimates. These allow for a long growing season and the slow, even ripening in which our select grape varietals thrive.

wine-acrobat

brandlin

Brandlin is a Napa Valley estate that produces wine from a small, historic vineyard in the Mount Veeder appellation. The wines pay homage to the Brandlin family.

As early as the 1870s, the Brandlins settled on these steep, rocky slopes, and became grape growing pioneers in Napa’s Mount Veeder region. With over 50 years’ of experience, Henry Brandlin staked the family’s claim to this estate and planted their own vineyards in 1926.

In 1998 Cuvaison Estate Wines was honored by Henry’s son, Chester Brandlin, with rights to purchase Brandlin Vineyard. Respectfully maintaining the integrity of the estate, only a fraction of the land has been planted to vineyards carefully designed to honor the integral beauty of the property.

carneros

Carneros della Notte vineyards today announced their debut release, consisting of two pinot noirs vintage 2003 now available at www.carnerosdellanotte.com. This new producer is created in partnership by two men of diverse backgrounds and is producing ultra-premium pinot noir wines from three different clones and three different rootstocks. The grapes are harvested by hand and exclusively at night while the juice chemistry is more stable. The winery’s name reflects this practice and translates to “Carneros of the Night”. Carneros della Notte is also the first producer to use a glow-in-the-dark wine label to further articulate the winery’s unique approach to pinot noir production.

The premier releases are the Los Carneros Pinot Noir, a 100% Pinot Noir from the Carneros region of Napa and Sonoma Valleys, which retails at $48.00 per bottle, and the Napa Valley DIII Vineyard Pinot Noir, which is produced with grapes grown exclusively from David Harmon’s Carneros-Napa Valley vineyard and is offered at $150.00 per bottle.

Across Tuscany and anywhere wine is made, nature gives us its bounty. At Castello Banfi and throughout the varied terroirs and soils that make up our constellation of vineyards, we harvest the goodness of the earth, caressing and nurturing it as we craft our wine to express all its character in every bottle.

Together with its sister estates in Piedmont, Vigne Regali and Principessa Gavia, it has become recognized the world over for its dedication to excellence and sparking a renaissance in the art of Italian winemaking.

conundrum

It all began at the dinner table. Charlie Wagner Sr., who co-founded Caymus Vineyards in 1972 with his wife, Lorna, and son, Chuck, would mix wines to find the perfect glass to pair with his meal. No one blended wines back then, so his experiment was pretty radical.

Fast forward to 1989, when Conundrum White was born, quickly taking off with its mysterious, tropical notes and amazing versatility. Conundrum Red, serious yet approachable, was introduced in 2011. Today, it¹s Charlie’s grandson, Charlie Wagner II, who keeps Conundrum as original as ever.

wine-caymus

Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons – a “Napa Valley” and the venerable “Special Selection”.  Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through “hang time” – a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in.  Leaving the fruit to “hang” on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes.  The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet.

chalk

“It is a privilege to be involved with such a significant and strikingly beautiful property. For nearly four decades, Chalk Hill has been one of the premier wine estates in California. Our Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs, and proprietary Estate Red are all considered benchmarks among their peers. Our commitment to sustainable farming ensures that our land will remain healthy for generations and our wines will accurately reflect their origins in the hills of eastern Sonoma County.”
William P. (Bill) Foley II

Chalone-Vineyard

Chalone Vineyard is the sole winery in the Chalone American Viticultural Area (AVA), a federally designated area that has climatic, geologic and geographic features that distinguish it from the land surrounding it.

Dramatic climate changes occur at Chalone Vineyard not only from season to season but hour to hour. Temperatures can swing from intensely hot during the day (90 degrees F) to considerably cooler at night (50 degrees F) over much of the growing season. Grapes need these cold nights to maintain their acidity while fully developing their flavors.

deluna

In the summer of 1559 Don Tristan De Luna sailed into what is now Pensacola Bay, becoming the first European settlement in the New World. The party of 1,500 soldiers and colonists anchored in the bay and set up camp close to where the N.A.S. lighthouse stands today. Unfortunately, before they could unload their vessels, a hurricane swept through and destroyed most of the ships and cargo.

emmolo

Born into two longstanding wine families in Napa Valley, Winemaker Jenny Wagner inherited a love of farming, an eagerness to get her hands dirty and a willingness to push boundaries.  There is no typical day at the winery.  The work changes with the seasons and you have to constantly adapt.  It’s your job to turn out a great wine no matter what Mother Nature hands you.

Finca-Adelmo

Finca Adelma is nestled in Mendoza, Argentina and makes Finca Adelma Reserva Malbec from grapes from the Tupungato Valley.  Its climate is ideal for growing this variety because it has a wide temperature range which favors the formation of anthocyanin and tannins responsible for the structure of the wine, stony and sandy loam soils, rainfall not exceeding 250 mm a year, and is undoubtedly one of the best wine regions of the world.

foppoli

The Foppoli family has been making boutique wines in California for nearly 100 years. In Italy, the family winemaking tradition dates back centuries. The American practice started 5 generations ago when Giuseppe Foppoli created a high end private label in a small production facility located in the North Beach section of San Francisco. Giuseppe only allowed the wine to be sold to a select list of long time customers and in the two high end private social clubs that he ran in the city.

FrankFamilyVineyards

Some legacies begin with legends. In 1958, Hanns Kornell introduced the French champenoise method to California. He produced this famous sparkling wine from the historic Larkmead Winery, originally built in 1884. Years later, in 1992, Rich Frank acquired the storied winery after the purchase of a classic Tudor home in Napa Valley’s Rutherford AVA and recognized the potential for something great – again. A continued preservation of history led to the unfolding of something new.

Goldschmidt-Vineyards

Our focus is Cabernet Sauvignon from two prestigious vineyards in Northern California — Yoeman Vineyard, located on the northeastern slope in the Alexander Valley, and Game Ranch Vineyard, located on old river bottom on the eastern bench of the Silverado Trail. Both showcase the optimum silhouettes of Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley and Napa Valley.

Jackson

We see possibility in a handful of earth. We’ve been family-owned and family-run since we planted our first vine in 1974. While our family of winegrowers has expanded over the years, one thing that has not changed is our family culture.

winte-kennemer

The family crest, which appears on our labels, was bestowed in 1438 by the Emperor Albrecht II, who ruled over Frankonia, Germany. The 2 stars symbolize the fortune of this family while the wing of the eagle in red and black sitting atop on the crowned helmet reflects the rise and the strength of the family. The family’s estate was known by this name for generations until 1936, when it was changed to commemorate the union between the Kemmeter and Reinhardt families. 

wine-king-estate

Situated at the tip of the Willamette Valley just southwest of Eugene, OR, our beautiful Estate is where our story begins.  We responsibly produce world-class wines that are consistently excellent, consistently available and consistently reasonable in their price.

kuleto

In 1992, culinary entrepreneur Pat Kuleto purchased 761 acres of rugged terrain in the mountains of Eastern Napa Valley. Overlooking Lake Hennessey, Pritchard Hill and the towns of Rutherford and St. Helena, the property was wild, remote, beautiful and private. In addition to its potential as a country estate, the property possessed a myriad of soils and the growing conditions needed to produce world-class, high-altitude wines.

After the site was surveyed, analyzed and mapped, planting began in 1993 with a handful of micro-blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Over the next few years, small blocks of Syrah, Zinfandel, Muscat and a number of blending varieties were added to the property. In addition to growing grapes, the estate was also a working ranch with sheep, fowl, cattle, fish, orchards and gardens.

mersoleil

Mer Soleil and Silver Chardonnays are both products of the same fruit from the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County.  The difference between the two Chardonnays is the fermentation process.  Mer Soleil is fermented in French oak barrels chosen from an array of coopers, while Silver never sees the inside of a barrel.  Winemaker, Charlie Wagner, uses modern fermentation and aging methods utilizing both stainless steel and cement tanks for Silver unoaked Chardonnay.

wine-logo-mtga

My name is Mike Anderson and welcome to MTGA Wines. This wine project was created to focus on small production, craft wines. MTGA began as of 2010 with just 40 cases of Merlot from St. Helena.

wine-overgaauw

The more things change, the more they stay the same’ as the historic Stellenbosch estate embraces change while retaining their rich legacy.

More than a century old, this historic fourth-generation-owned Stellenbosch wine estate is one of the ‘first families of Cape wine’, and boasts a laudable reputation as ‘leader of the pack’ (John Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2001). While Overgaauw is synonymous with innovation – most recently reflected in the release of top-quality new vintages across the Overgaauw wine range, all sporting brand new labels – the team is careful not to allow modernization to detract from their rich legacy.  

resonance-purple

It was a crisp spring day in April 2013 when Thibault Gagey and Jacques Lardière set out to survey a well-established vineyard named Résonance. Jacques had just retired after leading winemaking at Maison Louis Jadot for 42 years, and Thibault, whose family has operated Maison Louis Jadot since 1962, was ready to enter the business with a bold new project…

Reynolds_Monogram

Our 9-1/2 acre home vineyard sits in the shadow of Atlas Peak, just south of Stags Leap, where it enjoys cool breezes from San Pablo Bay to the south. The growing conditions here are ideal for producing big, rich, complex wines.

The vineyard was first planted it in 1996 using “bench grafted vines” which were quite new back then. With bench grafting, the plants are raised at the nursery for one to two years before planting. This cuts about a year off the vine’s development, allowing it to deliver usable fruit in its fourth leaf rather than its fifth.

ridgevineyards

The history of Ridge Vineyards begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor who became a prominent member of San Francisco’s Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge. He terraced the slopes and planted vineyards; using native limestone, he constructed the Monte Bello Winery, producing the first vintage under that name in 1892. This unique cellar, built into the mountainside on three levels, is Ridge’s production facility. At 2600′, it is surrounded by the “upper vineyard.”

A decade later the winery expanded its winemaking to include cool-climate varietals from the Sonoma Coast. Nestled in the southern reaches of Alexander Valley, Roth’s home vineyard is comprised of gentle rolling hills. The low-vigor, volcanic-based soil shapes Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot wines of intensity, depth and concentration.

Blended in to each of these wines is this team’s signature of passion… buried underneath the layers of aromas and flavors, is a subliminal sense of the many souls involved in growing and making these wines.”

smithhook

It was in the mid-1970’s and on two neighboring ranches-turned-vineyards in Monterey County that Nicolaus (“Nicky”) Hahn and his wife Gaby first established Hahn Winery and Smith & Hook wines. The Smith Ranch had been horse ranch, while the Hook Ranch had raised cattle for generations; their prime location provided a perfect setting for growing premium varietal fruit. Smith & Hook Winery released its first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon to high acclaim in 1980. Today Smith & Hook continues to produce its signature varietal-Cabernet Sauvignon. The bottle, with its ‘ranch brand’ emblazoned directly onto the bottles, reflects the heritage of Smith & Hook wines and the Hahn winery. Hand-crafted by winemaker Paul Clifton, the wine echoes the pioneering spirit of the Hahn Family and their commitment to Monterey winegrowing.

TruchardVineyards

Tony & Jo Ann Truchard both grew up in Texas and had plans to spend most of their lives there. They married in 1964.  The Truchard family took a number of road trips.  On one such trip, after checking in at the Presidio in San Francisco, the family drove up to the Napa Valley to see the vineyards.  Tony thought it would be “fun” to buy some Napa property and plant a vineyard.  During the next two decades, Tony continued to buy property until he had 400 adjoining acres and the story continues from there!

weather

Weather delivers delicious hints of ripe red fruit, caramel and cola that contrast perfectly with the warm, round undertones of its earthy tannins. Sustainably Farmed. Single Vineyard.

williamson

The grape vine is the source of all wine. Reaching the highest level of quality in wine is only possible by starting with the highest quality fruit.

To get the best fruit we must control vineyard attributes such as location, soil chemistry, farming protocols, canopy management, fruit thinning and harvest timing.

While this gives us the best fruit it limits the total amount of wine we can produce, but there really is no other way.

Winner's-Circle-Winery

Every effort was made to make Bon Pari a top quality wine.  We sourced the fruit from the highest quality vineyards.  The grapes are harvested at a very low yield of 2 tons per acre, sometimes less, resulting in highly concentrated fruit.  The winemaker is Fred Scherrer.  Fred was educated at UC Davis and has been making wine for over 30 years … I was thrilled that Fred agreed to make a relatively small volume of wine for me.  He used 40% new French oak barrels and 60% once used.  The wine spent about 21 months in barrel before bottling.  Fred’s winemaking philosophy is one of minimum intervention … if you’ve got great fruit, the wine doesn’t need to be “tampered with”.
