Winemaker: Andrew Schweiger
We are proud to have Andy Schweiger as our winemaker. He is also the winemaker for Schweiger Vineyards and Winery where our grapes are crushed and our wine is made. Andy attended UC Davis, where he received a degree in Viticulture and Enology. His previous experience includes work at a number of wineries such as Chateau St. Jean, ZD and Cain. Thanks to Andy's talents and careful attention, we produce a fabulous cabernet!
Annual Production: 200 cases
Our family-owned, half acre vineyard on the Silverado Trail just north of St. Helena has over 1200 tightly spaced cabernet sauvignon vines. A no-till cover crop of grass and clovers grows between the rows to help control vine vigor and provide a habitat for beneficial insects. In 2005, we are proud to have had our vineyard enrolled under the Napa Green Certified Land Program by the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service, CA Department of Fish and Game, Napa County Agricultural Commissioner and Regional Water Quality Control Board (you would expect no less from a retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employee!). Depending upon Mother Nature, our small vineyard averages 3 tons of grapes each year, resulting in a limited release of 200 cases of an elegant 100% Cabernet.
