Our vineyard rests on a hillside overlooking Napa Valley. Planted in the Rutherford Appellation 600 feet above the fog line with an exposure 20 degrees off north. The site sees sun from early morning until late afternoon, ensuring even ripeness of the grapes. Cool nights help to develop firm tannins and fresh acidity creating remarkable structure and balance in the finished wines. Our rocky serpentine soils benefit from a mineral deposit rich in iron and magnesium. This distinctive mineral deposit provides layers of complexity and flavor to wines unique to our site.
All of these factors, along with the way we organically grow and care for our vines, distinguishes CASPAR ESTATE from its Napa Valley neighbors.
