A brief history
PALMAZ VINEYARDS is a family-owned and -operated gravity-flow, gravity-finish winery and historic estate at the southern end of Napa Valley. The property has been cultivated since the advent of Napa Valley´s wine-and-spirits industry in the 1860s notably by Napa pioneer Henry Hagen, whose Cedar Knoll Vineyards, winery and distillery was there from 1881 to 1895.; The Palmaz family´s take on wine stems from their belief that science perfectly complements the traditions of viticulture and winemaking a conviction upheld with every bottle of world-class Palmaz wine. The estate comprises 610 sustainable acres; the vineyards 15 terroirs planted at three elevations: 400, 1,200 and 1,400 feet above sea level are spread over 64 acres of diverse terrain that yields complex wines.; The estate´s centerpiece is the Cave, an 18-story, 100,000-square-foot subterranean winery that required seven years to complete. There, the family combines the latest technology with time-honored craftsmanship to make, among much else, their signature Palmaz Cabernet Sauvignon.
