Wineries Pouring at Napa Pain
Rocca Family Vineyards began in 1999, when proprietors Mary Rocca and Eric Grigsby purchased a 21-acre Yountville vineyard nestled deep in the heart of the Napa Valley. They purchased the 11-acre Collinetta Vineyard in 2000, planted on a small hill in the Coombsville Appellation. Both of the Rocca vineyards produce some of the Valley’s best wine grapes and in turn, some of the Valley’s most acclaimed wines.
Our 10 acre, hillside vineyard sits 380 ft above sea level, with South facing views of the San Pablo and San Francisco Bay. The elevation and proximity to San Pablo Bay eliminate the concern of frost, while the cool, foggy influences from the marine environment allow delicate Pinot Noir grapes to flourish. This small pocket in South Napa is an ideal area to grow world class Pinot Noir grapes.
Eagle Eye is a family owned estate winery located in a small valley surrounded by hills known as Gordon Valley, “The Hidden Gem” of Napa Valley. Owners Bill and Roxanne Wolf’s passion for food and wine have lead them to re-plant this historic property which dates back to the early 1900’s.
Rooted in our Howell Mountain estate, the wine of Robert Craig winery explore the depth and breadth of Napa Valley’s mountain appellations: Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, Mount Veeder and Diamond Mountain. Each rare. Each extraordinary. Since our first vintage back in 1992, Cabernet Sauvignon has been the backbone of our portfolio. Today, our aware-winning Cabernets are complemented by limited, exquisite bottling of Zinfandel, Merlot, Chardonnay and Rose.
Hand crafted, small production wines created by winemaker and founding partner, Jason Moore of Modus Operandi wines.Their portfolio consists of Sauvignon Blanc, Rose, Cabernet and Pinot noir.
Tournesol wine estate is located in the Coombsville AVA of the Napa Valley. Bob and Anne Arns planted 15 acres of Bordeaux varietals on a gently sloping bench 300 feet above the valley floor. Tournesol vineyard practices follow principles of sustainability and organic farming, and the property is certified Napa Green. Tournesol vines enjoy perfect exposure to the sun with cool breezes from San Francisco Bay providing an ideal growing climate.
