Cal Napa Valley / United States of America
Featured in the current Cellar Offering
The 250-acre ranch is tucked into the foothills of the craggy Palisades Mountains and neighbours the iconic and historic Eisele Vineyard, now owned by Château Latour’s François Pinault. The vineyard was established in the late 1970s by Dr. Tom Kenefick, who was a practicing neurosurgeon in San Francisco at the time. Now retired, he lives on the ranch and is still very hands-on with his son Chris and daughter Caitlin running the business. For the time being, wines are made by Kent Jarman at a nearby winery, although the family have applied for a permit to build their own facility. The winery produces four red wines, each characterized by a fine silky texture with great finesse.
