Founder’s Ranch Napa Valley Red Wine

Founder’s Ranch Napa Valley Red Wine bottle

This collection of wines highlights the unique and impressive terroirs of Napa Valley while imbuing the founding spirit of the St. Helena Viticultural Club into each one. The red Wines have a touch of St. Helena fruit from the Founder’s Ranch vineyard. Originally planted in the late 1900s and returned to vineyards in the 1960s, the land and its historical barn are uniquely positioned on the southern edge of St. Helena on gravelly alluvial fan soils with excellent drainage. 

The grapes were harvested from vineyards mostly found on the valley floor across Napa. Picked in the early morning hours to maintain freshness, the grapes went through extended maceration and the wine was aged for 18 months in 20% new French oak before being bottled.
