A farm to barrel philosophy designed to let each site shine

When our predecessors settled here in 1852, they landed on some spectacular Napa Valley terroir. Like the six generations of farmers and ranchers behind us, we’re wholly devoted to that land, tailoring our rigorous farming and winemaking processes to each distinctive site.

Matt Hardin has managed some of Napa’s most iconic vineyards. Thomas Rivers Brown has crafted some of Napa’s most celebrated and scored wines. They’re each at the absolute top of their game, and in fifteen years working together, they’ve teamed up on projects like Maybach, Outpost, Pulido-Walker, Casa Piena, and Caterwaul.

“I thought that by creating a wine label, I would inevitably become a better farmer, I would see the entire circle of my fruit. From the land which I farm to your glass. There is no more perfect way to judge a farmer than by the product which he creates out of the soil he has been entrusted with.”
- Matt Hardin, Grower

Hardin Ranch

Once owned by the Hardin family matriarch, this vineyard represents some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in California.

Often reserved for pricier varietals, the loamy soils and diurnal temperature swings at Hardin Ranch create an unexpected, elevated profile.

Adobe Vineyard

Matt handpicked this 18-acre plot on the hillsides of Wallace Ranch for its exceptional Cabernet-growing potential. It didn’t earn its name from Adobe soils, it’s where a big Adobe house once stood back in the early 1800s.

This site contains vineyard blocks planted to Matt and Thomas Rivers Brown’s exact specifications, the same ones they’d use for the highest-end vineyards in Napa Valley.

Section 15

For Matt, Section 15 feels like home. It’s part of the Wallace Ranch, where he grew up, and the first vineyard he ever managed.

It’s planted in classic clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon where alluvial and colluvial soils collide on the banks of Pope Creek.

Block 1
Regusci Vineyard

Regusci Block 1 overlooks the Napa Valley from the hills of Stag’s Leap District. It’s a slice of Alicia’s childhood home and family property.

The site is located on the shoulder of a western facing slope planted in the mid-90s with clone 15.
