to get here

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 country in California.

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

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 and planted in a sexy, mid-90s rootstock and clone 15 combo.
