A Grower / Producer is unique in that it owns and manages all of its own land, producing wine from those vineyards. This is a definite advantage over so many wineries that buy fruit from growers- like us. We own our vineyards and manage them with enough care to be Certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers since 1991. (www. ccof.org)
Family owned since 1903, here are the four single vineyards that offer you Ghost Block Wines:
Sauvignon Blanc reigns here, occupying all of the 32 acres. The vineyard was acquired by Ghost Block 1986.
Rock Cairn Vineyard
In the Oakville appellation, grapes from the old vines of the Rock Cairn Vineyard have been long sought after by some of Napa Valley’s finest wineries. It is named for rock cairns left by Native Americans who traveled through the hills of Yountville. The 32 precious acres are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon.
Ghost Block Vineyard
