Franciscan has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Napa Valley. Founded over three decades ago, wine industry revolutionaries Raymond Duncan and Justin Meyer shaped the winery’s beginnings. In 1985, renowned vintner Agustin Huneeus took over the reins, leading the winery to greatness through innovation and a commitment to small-lot winemaking. Today, Director of Winemaking Janet Myers is preserving the winery’s legacy while leading it into the future. “We inherited a craftsman’s ethic here: work with nature, work in small lots, innovate. Our uniqueness depends on the details,” she says. All of Franciscan’s winemakers have left their individual marks, but all have remained true to Franciscan’s signature: bold wines with the rare combination of rich, vibrant flavors yet fine, supple texture.

My first taste at the winery we stayed at in Napa. This series is part of a wine/cheese pairing at Franciscan. The aromas are very green and herbal, floral and citrus but underlying green fruit notes on the palate, green apples, grapefruit and lime, easy drinking with a light finish. Tasted with a goat cheese which helped with the acidity of the wine.
