About The Vineyard
Naturally farmed since its inception, White Rock Vineyards uses time proven techniques of nutrient rich compost, cover crops and hand cultivation to ensure the highest quality fruit, soil health and a diverse and balanced ecosystem for all who work, live and play among the vines.
Located between Napa Valley’s Stags Leap and Atlas Peak appellations, White Rock farms a bowl of volcanic bedrock shaped over a millenia. A unique site providing ideal valley floor Chardonnay terroir, as well as diverse hillside elevations and exposures for Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
The white volcanic ash soils produce small berries that make wines of great concentration and complexity.
With over 40 years of dutiful cultivation by the Vandendriessche family, White Rock produces elegantly refined, richly concentrated, mineral intensive wines.
Hand harvested, barrel fermented and aged in French oak for 11 months, with 15% Malolactic Fermentation.
