Clos Du Val
At Clos Du Val, their story is rich in history.
But it is also a living story that is still being written today. Great wineries do more than just endure—they learn, refine, evolve and perfect. As deeply rooted members of the Napa Valley wine community, their team takes remarkable pride in being the stewards of this iconic winery. As its stewards, they see it as their duty to build on Clos Du Val’s rich legacy. Their goal is not simply to leave Clos Du Val better than we found it, it is to make it better than it has ever been.
To achieve this, a period of unprecedented change has begun at Clos Du Val that includes a vibrant and vineyard-driven stylistic shift in their wines, and new viticultural practices that focus on lower yields and ideal vine balance. They have also completely renovated their winemaking facility, and built a new small-tank fermentation room.
Perhaps, the most important change is their renewed focus on the Stags Leap District Cabernets that first catapulted them to fame, and their decision to concentrate exclusively on making estate-grown wines. As part of this commitment, they have reduced their Cabernet production almost in half. Simply put, instead of making more wine, they have dedicated ourselves to making extraordinary wine.
