Vittorio’s Vineyard, about thirty acres adjacent to the winery on the south side, is planted about half to Cabernet Sauvignon. The soils are gravelly loam and marginally fertile, which stresses the vines and produces excellent quality grapes. The vineyard enjoys a microclimate that is perfectly suited to Cabernet and the four other varieties (Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah & Zinfandel) planted there.
One of our two single vineyard bottlings, the Morisoli Vineyard is on the prized Rutherford Bench, home to some of Napa Valley’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignons.
