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 »

  • Back in July, I proposed a West Coast Pinot Noir throwdown on the Snooth forums.  In what was a pot-luck twist on one of Gregory dal Piaz’s “Drink My Wine” events, I suggested that any Snooth forum posters could congregate in my neck of the woods—Oakland, California—and bring a bottle of their favorite Pinot Noir from whatever region they think ...

  • We're heading back to (my favorite wine region) Russian River the first weekend in October and are looking for advice on what to do and what to expect.  We've been to RRV several times but only during the off season.  Is there anything special we should do at this time of year, and conversely, is there anything we should avoid?

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • We visited White Rock in early August ('10) during our stay in Napa and were throughly enchanted by this boutique winery that produces arguably one of the best Napa Chardonnays we've ever tasted and without a doubt the best Cab I've tasted - period. While I'd like to think I know more than the average person about wine I'm still learning about ...
