Padrone is created in honor of Ray Signorello Sr., a visionary whose life was as full of character as our wines. It is a seamless integration of supple tannins, intense varietal aromas and rich flavor that expresses the utmost quality of the Estate. The grapes for this proprietary Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from the best blocks of our extremely rocky hillside vineyard. This is a deeply concentrated wine with layers of complexity designed for extended aging.
Hope’s Cuvée Chardonnay showcases our utmost dedication to excellence, named in honor of my mother, Hope Signorello. It benefits from an intimate understanding of our 5.12 acre parcel on the west side of our hill. Planted 38 years ago with clonal selections from one of the region’s earliest outstanding vineyards, it is now one of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards in Napa Valley. Night-time hand-harvesting into small trays protects the varietal’s refined and delicate flavors. This naturally fermented, unfined & unfiltered Chardonnay can be enjoyed over the next 15 years.
“Seta” is Italian for silk, which appropriately describes this lush, silky blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Sémillon sourced from our low-yielding vines on the Silverado Trail, on the south end of Napa Valley. Significant vineyard management techniques include vertical trellising, cluster thinning to 2 tons per acre and leaf removal on the east side of the vines to allow for uniform ripeness.
