Where it all begins • • 
Phoenix Ranch Vineyard

Phoenix Ranch is in the southeastern part of Napa Valley and is located such that it enjoys a significant San Francisco Bay climate. The ranch is often blanketed with bay area fog until mid morning, when like clockwork, it burns off and gives way to the heat of the afternoon sun, allowing just enough time to gently heat and ripen the fruit. In the evening, the fog rolls back in and the vineyard cools down again. This regular cooling and heating cycle helps retain the natural acidity in the fruit and allows for a longer, more even ripening of the fruit.

Soda Creek Vineyard

Soda Creek Vineyard is located in the southeastern part of the Napa Valley and is home to numerous old-growth California oak trees as well as the Soda Creek, which winds through its 20 acres. Several distinct microclimates are found on the property, providing ideal growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Sauvignon Blanc.  The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are bright and lively with a strong backbone of minerality.  Two acres of these vines are planted in the cooler microclimate nearest the creek,where the soil is somewhat sandier.
