We’re glad you dropped by, please stay a while and learn more about Grand Napa Vineyards’ wines, the various appellations of Napa Valley, and our winemaking philosophy.
The Napa Valley region is located 50 miles north of San Francisco, California and is bounded on both sides by mountains – the Vacas on the east and Mayacamas on the West. The valley’s topography changes dramatically from windswept flats in the north to the confines of mountains in the south. As a result of millions of years of geologic events such as the earth’s shifting crust, volcanic activity, and the deposition of sediment by changing sea levels, the valley has some 30 different soil types.
The growing season in Napa Valley is characterized by warm, dry days and cool evenings, and is influenced by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. This weather allows grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. Within the appellation, however, there are distinct micro-climates ranging from a moderate climate with cool marine breezes to warmer temperatures with more rainfall.
The combination of these deep, fertile soils and a maritime climate of warm days and cool evenings produce grapes of outstanding intensity, complexity and balance. The art of matching the right grape to the right soil and climate yields diverse wines, each with their own unique characteristics. Because of many microclimates and terrains within the Napa Valley appellation itself, 14 distinct subappellation or AVAs have been granted. The extraordinary choice of wines range from concentrated Cabernet Sauvignons to creamy Chardonnays, but Cabernet Sauvignon is recognized as the king.
Aromas of blackberry, blue fruited, concentrated and everything you would expect from Rutherford Cabernet. Soft developed tannins.
