La Rochelle Winery was founded in 2005 by Steve Mirassou of the Mirassou family which is the oldest winemaking family in North America. It is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley in Kenwood surrounded by rolling hills, big trees, and beautiful vineyards. A small family owned winery, they are known for their single vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals. Become educated on their small lot Pinot Noirs from ground up, including vineyard practices, site and clonal selection, fermentation, barrel aging strategies, blending, and the benefits of bottle aging.
Guided for more than two decades by the Stotesbery family, Ladera has earned a reputation for making some of Napa Valley’s most extraordinary mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignons, along with acclaimed Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from their Pillow Road Estate Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Along the way, Ladera has helped to champion a beautifully balanced expression of winemaking, with smoothly structured tannins, energetic natural acidity and soaring flavors.
Celebrating nearly 50 years in the wine business and a concentration in Napa and Carneros vineyards, Laird Family Estate has sought to produce wines that are a window to a place. Each one of their vineyards is different in expression: each has a subtle, yet distinctive vineyard voice.
Lamborn Family Vineyards is located at 2,200 feet above sea level, high atop Howell Mountain, Napa Valley. Howell Mountain's volcanic soil, combined with its distinct mezzo climate, provides our small, organic ten-acre vineyard with ideal growing conditions. This environment produces Howell Mountain Zinfandels and Cabernet Sauvignons of the highest quality and intensity, with all winemaking by Heidi Barrett of Screaming Eagle fame. The organic grapes which eventually become Lamborn wines are exclusively from our organic estate vineyard. We take that formula one step further by organically farming the vineyard ourselves. Our annual farming decisions are based on quality and nothing else.
Originally founded in 1895, the historic Larkmead estate is one of the oldest winery establishments in Napa Valley. Known for a great diversity of soil types, the estate allows the winemaker to create small-lot wines of complexity and nuance based on each soil type.
