Location: Napa Valley, California

Calistoga Estate Vineyard

Surrounding the Twomey Napa Valley facility is our Calistoga Estate Vineyard, planted to a mixture of Sauvignon Blanc clones from California and France, including the highly aromatic Sauvignon Musque.

This warm, northern Napa Valley vineyard is partially dry-farmed, with vines that root deep into the earth searching for water and nutrients. Here, sandy bale loam soils tame the natural vigor of the Sauvignon Blanc variety, with balanced vines delivering fruit that brings bright acidity as well as richness and depth to the wine.

Napa Valley AVA

The Napa Valley AVA is California’s most renowned AVA—and its first. It’s nestled between the Mayacamas Mountain Range to the west and north (which also define and separate Napa Valley from Sonoma Valley) and the Vaca Mountains to the east.

Microclimates vary from the valley floor to its benchlands and from the south to the north. Rain is more common along the Mayacamas in the west, whereas the eastern side is more arid with gravelly soil. In the valley, the south tends to be cooler than the north, thanks to San Pablo Bay.
