Known for elegWinemaker Notes; Sweet Meyer Lemon, honeysuckle, and flinty mineral aromas define the fruit character of our Sonoma Carneros vineyard, Vineburg. Weekly bâtonnage gives the wine a silky texture, and small stainless steel barrel fermentation highlights the vibrant, refreshing character of the wine made from this vineyard.ant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit. This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.
Silverado Vineyards is located on the Silverado Trail in the Stags Leap District AVA of Napa Valley, California. It was established by the Millar family in 1981 and today has almost 160 hectares (400 acres) of vines. Silverado’s key grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but there are also plantings of various other grape varieties including Merlot and the slightly left-field Sangiovese.The land that is now Silverado Vineyards was purchased by the Millar family in 1970. Initially, the family sold their grapes to other wineries in the region, but realized the potential of the grapes grown on their land and decided to make and bottle their wines under the Silverado label.
