Nestled in the flats of Pope Valley on the morning side of Howell Mountain, Hardin Ranch occupies a remote corner of Napa. Wispy morning fog brushes the vineyard’s edges, while near-constant sunlight evokes bright fruit flavor and plunging nighttime temperatures preserve buzzing acidity.
Others might’ve reserved the vineyard’s loamy soils for pricey Cabernet. Not us. Over years working the property, we’ve discovered that it’s perfect for producing Sauvignon Blancs that pair California vibrancy with the texture and depth of fine Bordeaux Blanc—a balance you’ll rarely find elsewhere in Napa.
