THE ALICE VINEYARD
Located in Rutherford (an AVA which has been long famous for its tenacity to produce exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon grapes), the Alice Vineyard sits on the valley floor and has been revered for its magical soil. While there is something special about the soil of this vineyard, the passion put into the vineyard allows the grapes grown here to exceed a vintner’s wild imagination. Add to that, our winemaker Gary Galleron, has been working with the fruit from this vineyard for over 20 years, consistently putting out stellar wines that withstand the test of time
