Our estate South Napa Vineyard is located is planted to a blend of clones 77, 667 and 115. This vineyard is head trained and cane pruned with vertical shoot positioning resulting in ideal sun exposure. In this part of Napa Valley, the San Pablo Bay creates a cool, maritime climate. Morning fog rolls across the vines, ushering in the cool breezes ideal for growing delicate, flavorful Pinot Noir. The vines here produce complex, layered fruit that translates to an earthy minerality and exceptional natural acidity in the glass.

For a delicious meal, pair the Napa Cellars 2017 Syrah Rosé with prosciutto and melon, or toast topped with tapenade, mashed garlic, and salt.
The grapes for the 2018 Pinot Noir Rosé are handpicked and crushed immediately. After a cold maceration period helps to steer clear of excessive seed tannin extraction, the saignée bleed method is ensued. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel.
