Opulent, fruit-driven and generous, with a backbone of acidity and elegance, these wines are produced by masterful blending across terroirs evocative of Napa Valley’s modern style. TWO2 is the best of both worlds in its inspiration and creation. Don’t let this one slip through your hands, grab a case or two and enjoy!
About the Vineyard
Alpha Omega winemakers acquire fruit from younger Napa Valley vineyards that display a silky tannin profile and opulent texture which allow for early accessibility. We have unearthed a range of privately-owned boutique vineyards, hidden gems tucked in secret pockets of Napa Valley, that only Mother Nature and our winemaking team are fortunate enough to touch.
Handpicked grapes are fermented only in stainless steel tanks at Alpha Omega winery in Rutherford and at a higher temperature to reach a darker fruit profile and polished tannins.
