Vineyards of California
With wide ranging terrains, soils and micro climates, California is well known for the production of high quality wines and accounts for approximately 90% of all US wine production. We are located less than eight miles from the California border and will continue to rely on our neighbors to the west for grapes used in the production of many of our wines. We would like to introduce you to just a few of our preferred Golden state growers.
Capp Family Vineyards, North Coast
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc
The Capp family is a third generation grower in the lush Suisun Valley which is connected to the south eastern border of Napa Valley. For years, most of the fruit from this area has gone to premium wineries of Napa Valley.
This beautiful hillside vineyard is up the valley from Suisun harbor providing warm, dry daytime temperatures but cool crisp nights. This helps the grapes ripen slowly with long hang times that help the fruit develop rich, complex flavors.
We are proud of our relationship with the Capps and source Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay from them. All the vineyards are carefully cared for and watering is used sparingly to intensify the grapes. All vines are hand picked at night or early morning to maintain freshness.
