White Rock Vineyards produces world class Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, using only the fruit from our own vineyard. Our 36-acre family run estate is situated in its own small valley in the southern foothills of the Stag's Leap Range on the historic site of White Rock Vineyards which dates back to 1870. The Land and the Vines The estate is a small valley consisting of 22 acres of terraced hillsides and 14 acres of benchland. The soil of our hillsides is white volcanic ash, distinct from the typical Napa Valley alluvial soil. The combination of mature vines, volcanic soil and varied exposures create complex and age-worthy wines. The hills are planted predominantly to Cabernet Sauvignon, with blocks of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. These varietals combine to produce Cabernet Sauvignon blends in the Bordeaux tradition. The cooler benchland is planted to Chardonnay using a variety of Burgundian and old California clones. These vines produce small berries at 1.5-3 Read more »

  • So what’s the first thing you think of when you read Cariñena? I thought of the grape Cariñena, aka Carignane, eponymous as it is. What I did not think of was the region Cariñena in Spain’s province of Aragon. Why is that? It’s a good question, and one I resolved while visiting the region briefly early last month. Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More

  • Amen to that!And I never believed that there was anything sacred about single vineyards either. The whole point of mixing them is to make a great product.The one thing that used to happen but doesn't so much today is massale selection. Basically people would take their best vines and propagate those. That was done long before anyone even imagine... Read More

  • California "Old Vine" wines, Zinfandel, especially, have been getting a lot of attention in the last few years.  I, certainly, have been paying more attention to them, lately, mostly as a result of the postings of Outthere on some of the historic vineyards in his neck of the woods.  He interested me enough to join the Historic Vineyard Society, ...
