Vineyard Notes

We utilize long term grape contracts to ensure consistency and quality in the Bordeaux varietals that create our Artistry blend. The fruit is sourced from prized vineyards in St. Helena, Oakville, Yountville and Atlas Peak. Each vineyard is situated in ideal soil and microclimates, conducive to producing fully-ripened Bordeaux grapes with complex aromatic and flavor characteristics.
