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.

Production Techniques

Handpicked grapes are fermented only in stainless steel tanks at Alpha Omega winery in Rutherford.

Vintage Notes

In 2017, the vines encountered early heat prior to the berries going through veraison. We usually see natural acidity maintained in white grapes as ripening often happens before the hottest days occur late in season. Aided by naturally thicker skins and the implementation of shade cloth in the vineyard, the early heat events basically left us unaffected. Patience was required as vines tend to slow down at higher temperatures extending the berries’ phenolic ripening.
