A Timeless Classic. The great wines of the world consistently express the distinct qualities of the estates from which they come. In Napa, Quintessa is such a wine. To preserve the natural mosaic of the vineyard, each small plot is farmed, harvested and vinified individually so that the nuances of the land shine through. Afterward, the best components are brought together to create a wine of elegance and harmony.
Flowers Vineyards & Winery
Pioneers of the Sonoma Coast. The Flowers Vineyards and Winery estate stretches across a rugged ridgeline just two miles from the Pacific Ocean. Rising to an elevation of 1850 feet, these remote and extraordinary far-coast sites bring you Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a compelling sense of place, and remarkable acidity and balance in each vintage.
The Devil is in the Details. At Faust, we seek to express the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and the diversity of the Napa Valley by sourcing from our estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford as well as from small lots on Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. The culmination of these exceptional appellations results in a prodigious express of Cabernet Sauvignon — or put more simply, damn good Cabernet.
For the Sommelier. Leviathan is a red blend from legendary winemaker Andy Erickson, the former winemaker for Screaming Eagle. With Leviathan, Andy has the freedom to pursue his passion of crafting one red blend wine sourced from the best growing regions in California. Every year he coaxes the very best from each of the chosen varietals, regions and vineyards to create one distinct and exceptional red blend.
Pioneers of Oregon Pinot Noir. In the late 1980s Steve and Carol Girard, seduced by the Pinot Noir grape, left Napa Valley to pioneer the remote southern Willamette Valley. They found their perfect estate, a 145-acre expansive sheep farm that was free from chemicals or prior plantings. They knew this land was capable of growing silky, elegant and complex Pinot Noir. Today, Benton-Lane wines have received more top 100 Wines of the World than any other still wine producer in Oregon and Steve continues to farm his now-legendary estate using a blend of organic, biodynamic and sustainable practices.
A Passion Project. Intrigued with making a white wine for Quintessa, Agustin Huneeus planted a small plot of Sauvignon Blanc at Quintessa estate in 2002. Intended for family and friends, this passion project soon appealed to guests of Quintessa and top sommeliers in the country. Today, this limited production wine is one of Napa Valley's most sought-after white wines.
