A brief history

Constellation Brands will launch To Kalon Vineyard Company in 2019 with celebrated winemaker Andy Erickson at the helm. Erickson, in partnership with the fine wine division of Constellation Brands, will create terroir-driven wines from Constellation’s To Kalon Vineyard. The vineyard, located in Napa Valley’s Oakville AVA, includes land planted by H.W. Crabb over 150 years ago and is widely acknowledged as one of the most iconic vineyards in the world.

“We are thrilled to honor our To Kalon Vineyard legacy with the launch of To Kalon Vineyard Company,” said John Seethoff, Vice President of Marketing, Fine Wine, Constellation Brands. “Some of the greatest wines in the world are made from our To Kalon Vineyard, and Andy Erickson is one of the most intuitive and talented winemakers in the industry today.” The inaugural wine from To Kalon Vineyard Company will be the 2016 vintage of Highest Beauty, named for the nineteenth century vineyard planted by the pioneering vintner H.W. Crabb who named his winery To Kalon, meaning “highest beauty” in Greek.

“What amazes me about this vineyard is that it produces wines with very soft tannins and yet incredible focus. There is great varietal definition that shines through with wines produced from To Kalon Vineyard,” says Andy Erickson. He enthuses, “In addition to the incredible quality of the land, To Kalon has a deep and fascinating legacy. It is truly a gift to make wines from this great vineyard.”

To inspire his vision for Highest Beauty, map in hand, Andy Erickson tasted his way through 56 individually fermented blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon from our To Kalon Vineyard. To connect flavor and texture with soil and sun, he then walked the blocks, fine tuning his selections. Along with being a winemaker, Andy is also a highly experienced, hands-on winery designer. Leaving no detail to chance, he helped build the fermenters used to craft this small-lot wine.
