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 Read more »

  • Heitz Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Cork looked good in the bottle, but it broke with the corkscrew. In the glass it looks pretty good--nice red plum color, not particularly dark. Nose is a tad volatile, with a hint of the dreaded oxidation. On the palate, it seems a mild, friendly wine--tannins are completely gone--with a modicum of berry fruit. Tart and hot on the back of th... Read More
