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.

The Wine News ReviewRated 90Pale crystal hue. Intense aromas of pineapple and peach with secondary nuances of mineral and slate. Vibrant acidity and juicy flavors of lime and grapefruit. Hints of kiwi in the refreshing close.Wine Tasting NotesPale yellow in color. Citrus, melon and fig on the nose. Fresh and lively. Vibrant, layered flavors of lime, lemongrass and melon with hints of minerality on a crisp, elegant finish.
