Located on the western side of the valley floor in Rutherford, the Pestoni Ranch was planted by Henry and Lena Pestoni in 1923. Today, this same vineyard is planted with Sauvignon Blanc Musque and 317 Clones. This vineyard produces grapes with wonderful fruit intensity, ideal acidity and attractive mineral character which represent the true characteristics of the varietal.
The first wines that our family produced in the Napa Valley were known as field blends. Field blends were traditionally single-vineyard wines with multiple varieties of grapes grown, harvested, and fermented together. Our 1892 Field Blend pays homage to this early California winemaking tradition.
