Sciandri Family Vineyard
About The Vineyard
The 4+ acre vineyard on Sciandri 20 acre estate is allied with the Napa Green Certified Land Program, which includes a certification for Fish Friendly Farming. The family focuses on sustainable practices related to soil, drainage, wildlife and more.
The 2014 vintage was an outstanding growing season given the drought conditions the last couple of years. Moderate weather throughout the season with mild evenings and low humidity ensured a strong yet well balanced vine growth. Consistently warm days and cool evenings allowed the fruit to ripen steadily, yielding well developed flavors in the small concentrated berries.
Aging: 24+ months in French Oak
