Since 2005, we have purchased grapes solely from the Saviez Vineyard in Calistoga. Located on the corner of Larkmead Lane at Silverado Trail, the vines were planted in 1984. Using 3309 rootstock and grafting on Clone 4 Cabernet Franc, we feel Paul Saviez has the premier Cabernet Franc vineyard in Napa County. The site is on the original home ranch started in 1899. Deep, alluvial fan; basically bale loam soils, provide huge amounts of nutrients to facilitate perfect grape growing.
