Calistoga, Napa Valley


Since the 1970s, Jim Frediani (pronounced with a hard “a”) has been farming his family’s vineyard that spans the Silverado Trail. Valdiguié was once widely planted in California but known by the misleading name of Napa Gamay. We have found some valdiguié throughout mixed vineyards in Alexander Valley, particularly in Whitton block 101 of our Geyserville vineyard. In our pursuit of quality we continually experiment with various approaches to fermentation. This wine looks at fermenting grapes as whole, uncrushed clusters in an enclosed tank. The resulting wine is light in color, aromatic, fruit forward, soft and sensuous. It is intended for immediate consumption.
