Broken Rock
Cabernet Sauvignon

Named for its remarkably rocky soil, this 48 acre vineyard is Bill Hill’s home ranch. Perched on a steep, western facing slope, establishing this vineyard was a daunting but in the end highly rewarding task. This hillside location, blessed with high drainage and low fertility soil, consistently produces wines of unusual intensity and concentration. The property, which is currently planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is located on the eastern ridge of Napa Valley at the foot of Atlas Peak near Soda Canyon.

Bill Hill developed this vineyard in a true state-of-the-art fashion: it includes densely planted vines (over 2,000 vines per acre), the best clones grafted onto low vigor root stock, and northwest to southeast row orientation.

Dalla Gasperina
Sauvignon Blanc

As in Bordeaux, Sauvignon Blanc tends to do extremely well where Cabernet grows. Rutherford, in the heart of the Napa Valley, has sustained many of the region's most renowned wineries and produces some incredible Cabernet. The soils are a mosaic of gravelly loam and sand along with volcanic and marine sediments that provide excellent drainage. The wines display crisp citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon-lime, combined with minerality and herbaceous hints.

Rafael Vineyard

Cabernet Sauvignon

Rafael Vineyard is a sloping hillside property in Oak Knoll. Being in the southern part of the valley, the temperatures are moderated by the weather patterns coming off San Pablo Bay. These cooling breezes and morning fogs help the grapes retain assertive acids that warmer growing spots can't match. The vines at Rafael are planted in porous sands and gravel, which forces the roots to work deep into the ground in search of water. This natural devigoration helps produce smaller berries with balanced concentrations of tannins and acidity. (Clone 7 on 110R)

Reverence Vineyard
Cabernet Sauvignon

Reverence Vineyard is situated in southern Napa's Coombsville/Tulocay area. The 12+ acre vineyard sits on shallow, rocky-gravel soils and issolely focused on growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The microclimate, influenced by the cooling breezes and fogs off San Pablo Bay, help grapes assert the classic Cabernet acid/tannin profile. Reverence Vineyard was planted to a variety of clones primarily on 110R rootstock in 2002. Meticulous sustainable farming techniques and care that have gone in the property's development have us truly excited. If you are looking to create an opulent wine that reflects the Coombsville/Tulocay region, Reverence is the place.
