IN 1989, AGUSTIN AND VALERIA Huneeus came upon a jewel of a property hidden in the heart of Rutherford. What would become the Quintessa estate was pristine - and cultivated - land spread over rolling hills and small valleys. The property was so inspiring, the couple dedicated themselves to creating a wine that would capture its grandeur, beauty and harmony.
The latest release, the 2014, is a milestone: Quintessa's 20th anniversary vintage. To this day, Quintessa consistently expresses the distinct qualities of the land from which it comes. The estate features 26 unique vineyard blocks that are farmed, harvested and vinified individually to preserve and enhance the nuances of the land.
