Established in 1932, the 289-acre Regusci Ranch lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District and produces some of the most distinct and terroir-driven wines in the region. The Cabernet Sauvignon for Matthew Wallace is sourced from one of the finest blocks on the ranch, encompassing a westward-facing steep hillside that produces fruit of remarkable concentration and depth.
After being raised on his family’s farm in Tennessee, George P. Wallace moved west in 1852 to become a cattle rancher in California, and in 1868 purchased 500 acres originally part of the Locoallomi land grant in Napa County. To this day, the Wallace Ranch has been continually farmed to wine grapes and cattle for over 150 years.
The fruit for Matthew Wallace wine is sourced from an optimal section of the ranch situated on an alluvial fan, and creates extraordinarily rich Cabernet Sauvignon with a definitive yet supple tannin structure.
Farming the vineyards from which we source 100% of the fruit for Matthew Wallace wines allows me a remarkable opportunity to see my Napa Valley agricultural heritage come full circle. Beginning with the 2016 vintage, this wine will proudly include fruit from my family’s Wallace Ranch.
