Diamond Creek Vineyards
Established in 1968 by Al Brounstein, a visionary pioneer who defied modern conventions and planted Bordeaux varietals on secluded Diamond Mountain in the Napa Valley, Diamond Creek is California's first exclusively Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard. Part of Diamond Creek's uniqueness is the identification of three vineyard blocks (and thereby three separate wines) by the differences in soil structure and exposition, and naming them for their geological forms Red Rock Terrace (seven acres with reddish- brown soil facing north), Gravelly Meadow (five relatively flat acres with a gravelly, sandy soil) and Volcanic Hill (eight acres of white volcanic ash on the hillside facing south). Reviews constantly rate Diamond Creek's cabernets among the best California has to offer.
Since its inception in the early 80’s, Pahlmeyer’s mission has been to produce wines with power and personality. A strict viticultural regime combined with a risky but rewarding approach to winemaking creates wines having extravagant, concentrated fruit, polish and pizzazz. Using the clonal varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec from France, winemaker Randy Dunn created legendary Californian Bordeaux blends and placed Pahlmeyer among the serious Cabernet producers. Development with Wayfarer Farm will allow Pahlmeyer to offer world class Pinot Noir and expand its Chardonnay offering.
Philip Togni’s first wines were Cabernet and Sauvignon blanc in 1983, but the small family-owned vineyard now concentrates its efforts on a very ageworthy Margaux-type blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot, all grown on a 25 acre parcel where they also live. Having the unique distinction of being 100% ‘Estate Bottled’ is an important definition for Philip Togni, meaning that they grow all the grapes on land they own, make then bottle the wine at the vineyard with their own workers, totally free from outside influences.
