Artesa Vineyards & Winery:
Artesa is Napa's newest, most exciting winery. Our architecturally-acclaimed facility opened as Codorniu Napa in 1991, dedicated solely to méthode champenoise sparkling wine production.

Artesa is Napa's newest, most exciting winery. Our architecturally-acclaimed facility opened as Codorniu Napa in 1991, dedicated solely to méthode champenoise sparkling wine production. But in 1997, with the arrival of a world-class winemaker and a $10 million conversion, the winery shifted focus dramatically. Artesa was born with the inaugural release of ultra-premium still wines in September 1999. Artesa (ahr TESS uh) means "craftsman" and connotes "handcrafted" in Catalan, language of Barcelona and our owner, Codorníu, one of the world's largest and oldest wineries. The Codorníu Group actually consists of eight spectacular wineries whose wines are enjoyed daily in over 100 countries around the world. So, while we are Napa's newest, our heritage is rich. We share five centuries of history with 15 generations of a remarkable winemaking family. Read less

I got to try this wine at a party and was grateful it was there, surrounded by lesser libations! Fruit and oak galore, but not super heavy. Solid tannins and nicely paired with barbecue.

Sits on the border of ordinary and fancy, and the right food could make the difference. Dry, rich and fruity in berry-cherry and Asian spice flavors and smoky oak, this two-county Cab has a rough edge to the softness. Cries out for a salty, peppery grilled steak.

By using grapes from both Napa and Sonoma, Artesa creates a well-balanced Cab while maintaining the grape's natural brawn. Sweet vanilla from oak-aging smooths out the tannins in this deliciously round red.
