NEW RELEASE!

WINEMAKING
Situated in the SouthEast reaches of Napa Valley, on a slope of intense blue shale, boulders and fine gravel pockets is the Sugarloaf Vineyard. The diurnal of cold mornings and warm afternoon sun is the absolute perfect setting for Cabernet Franc. This small lot of only 100 cases is aged in 75% new French oak barrels for 22 months and native malolactic fermentation completed by its first spring.

WINEMAKER AND PHILOSOPHY
Kirk Venge follows his father's creed, "making wine in the vineyard," and his grandfather's footsteps, on the Napa Valley soils where he was born and raised. Deep roots and decades’ experience have affirmed his approach from bud-break to barrel, from berry to bottle: “We garden our grapes.” An authentic taste of terroir…born in the vineyard, and raised in your glass.
