when I am working
in the fields,
I reach down
and get a handful
of good clean dirt.

It feels warm
in the palm of my hand.

I let it dribble
through my fingers
and I feel as if
I had just
shaken hands
with all my ancestors.

The unique sub-appellation of the Napa Valley American Viticulture Area (AVA) where we reside is the Oak Knoll District. The even warming and cooling of our unique location makes Oak Knoll District, or OKD, the quintessential “Sweet Spot” of Napa Valley and the world. It’s warm enough to perfectly ripen our red grape varieties–Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah–while being cool enough for our white grape varieties—Chardonnay and Viognier. This fruit is renowned for producing some of the finest wines in Napa Valley and the world.
