Heitz Wine Cellars inhabits a pristine valley in the eastern hills of St. Helena known to the locals as Spring Valley. In 1964, Joe and Alice Heitz acquired this 160-acre ranch and winery to accommodate their burgeoning family business. The gray stone cellar, constructed of hand-chiseled perlite in 1898, safeguards Heitz' collection of French oak barrels which are filled with aging wine. The rich patina of its weathered walls is in perfect harmony with the high-tech equipment dotting the landscape of the winery's grounds in the 21st century. Second generation Kathleen Heitz Myers and David Heitz are now at the helm as president and winemaker. They have each been integral to the success of the family business since the 1970s, helping to build the worldwide reputation for Heitz Cellars --- a name that has become synonymous with luxury in the world of winemaking. Heitz Wine Cellars has earned countless accolades for its dazzling wines every year since 1961. Their three renowned vineyard-designated wines --- Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Bella Oaks Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon --- are the highlight of the winery's distinguished resumé. Heitz' remarkable Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been a collector's favorite for over 40 years. Wine Spectator underscored this wine's legendary status by selecting Martha's Vineyard Cabernet as one of the Top 12 wines of the 20th Century. Heitz Wine Cellars' Chardonnay, Grignolino, Zinfandel and Port have also earned their share of ardent fans over the years. To many admirers, the Heitz label is the premiere symbol of fine wine and graceful hospitality. "We handcraft our wines with the utmost respect for the incomparable vineyards of the Napa Valley. It's a real pleasure to share a bit of their magical bounty in every bottle of wine we make." - Kathleen Heitz Myers, President Since the winery ranch also includes the Heitz' family home, we direct visitors to our original site on St. Helena Highway where we have welcomed wine lovers for almost half a century.

Excellent structure, with a firm, refined band of spicy currant, herb, bay leaf and cedar. Wonderful balance and integration of flavors, with a supple texture and a long, complex finish. Drink now through 2009. 2,946 cases made. -JL The 1999 Trailside Vineyard Cabernet epitomizes the capabilities of the rich, lush fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Deliciously concentrated fruit, yet smooth and balanced, this Cabernet is one of the best to date from this Rutherford vineyard. An absolutely fabulous, charismatic wine with dense complexity that is truly outstanding. - Winery ** Only 1 in Stock **

Martha's vineyard is 34 gently sloping acres on the western side of Napa Valley. In 1966, Martha's vineyard became the first vineyard-designated wine in Napa Valley. This is aged in mostly new casks adding a broad element of spice to the cassis fruit.

A phenomenol vintage from a classic producer. The Trailside vineyard is known to be a more structured, powerful wine. It is aged in a 100% new French oak but has finesse that will age marvelously.
