BALE MILL CREEK VINEYARD is Nestled into the base of the Mayacamas Mountains along Mill Creek at the northern terminus of the St. Helena sub-appellation, Bale Mill Creek has its roots in one of the classic alluvial fans of the Napa Valley. 

The original plantings, dating back to the early 1990’s, sit in gravelly soils studded with obsidian stones brought across the valley from Glass Mountain by the Native Americans that once camped along the creek. This vineyard is farmed “beyond organic” by Jim Gamble to cordon trained vines, low to the ground, that undulate along the alluvial fan allowing for wines of deep color. A cool evening breeze brought over the mountains from the Pacific Ocean assists in balancing the vineyard’s depth with a natural freshness, complementing the aromatically unique fruit from this well-draining site. 





Our grower partner, Jim Gamble, paraphrased the ethos of his land: “Bale Mill Creek Vineyard sits on a pronounced alluvial fan above Mill Creek, resulting in (very) rocky and well drained soils.  This creates a perfect soil profile for vines to produce world class grapes.  We farm Bale Mill Creek Vineyard organically.  This is the right thing to do for Mother Earth, and it honors the area’s rich cultural history.  This was a popular spot for the early settlers in the Napa Valley.  Bale Mill Creek Vineyard is on the western and cooler side of the valley.  With the year-round supply of water in Mill Creek, the Old Bale Grist Mill was built across the road in 1846.  This was also a popular area for the early Native American residents, due to the afternoon shade and water in Mill Creek.”

BECKSTOFFER VINEYARDS GEORGES III, located along Conn Creek at the eastern edge of Rutherford, is a beautiful ranch with acres of grapes placed under a conservation easement. This historic vineyard dates back to 1895 and is tied to legendary winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff. 

Beginning at 500 feet of elevation, the vineyard gently slopes to the south, offering optimum sun exposure for ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, and complementing their meticulous farming. In the pre-World War II era our already gravelly block was supplemented with stones from the creek during a flood control project done by the Army Core of Engineers. Planted entirely to Clone 337 of Cabernet Sauvignon, suited for the well-draining Cortina soils where they sit, and each vine’s ‘Lyre’ training protects the fruit from Rutherford’s warm climate, allowing for maximum hang-time.

SLEEPING LADY VINEYARD, named for the distinctive hillside profile resembling a resting woman at the foot of the Mayacamas Mountain range

Nestled at the southwest boundary of the Yountville AVA, the 46-acre Sleeping Lady Vineyard offers a captivating blend of history and innovation. This meticulously farmed vineyard traces its roots back to the 1860s or 1870s, with the original Victorian homestead still standing as a testament to its rich heritage.

In 2013, the Bettinelli family acquired the property that they have managed for years, elevating the grapes to exceptional quality, and setting a new standard for viticultural excellence.

“Trust your instincts, pay attention to details, but don’t let that make you overlook the big picture, “The first time I stepped onto the soil at Sleeping Lady, I could feel that it was a remarkable place for growing great wine, and I never discount the way a place makes me feel.”, Larry Bettinelli.

OAKVILLE RANCH VINEYARD, perched atop the Vaca Mountains at 1,400 feet of elevation at the eastern end of the Oakville sub-appellation, Oakville Ranch is planted in one of the Napa Valley’s most rugged landscapes. 

The vineyard has a commanding view over the Napa Valley, and its elevation allows for the unique combination of sun exposure for optimum color. A direct shot to the San Pablo Bay, just a few miles south, offers a cooling ocean breeze during the mornings and afternoons that balances the renowned structure of Oakville.  Our organically farmed blocks consist of Cabernet Sauvignon Clones 169 and 7. Two of the most aromatically profound Cabernet clones, their roots are settled in iron rich, eroded sandstone indicative of the site’s volcanic history. These complementary factors in accordance with the elevation, result in small, concentrated berries that produce wines of lushness and minerality.
