Canvas Collection is a project for art lovers, by art lovers. The 2016 vintage begins with the launch of our premium Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
Sourced from Calistoga, the grapes are grown on gravel top-soils, with red clay sub-soils at low altitudes. The average age of vines are 25 years old, producing lower fruit-yields.
The grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed in pneumatic presses, to preserve the delicate primary aromas that gives Sauvignon Blanc its unique and distinct profile. In order to ensure the quality and complexity of Calistoga soils are preserved, we keep our production low.
The 2016 vintage saw only 450 cases produced. At the beginning of the year, a handful of artists were tasked with painting an original canvas, based on the the tasting notes of the vintage.
We are pleased to feature “The Garden Path” by Ilona McCrea on the 2016 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc label. Ilona returned with “The Garden Path”, an acrylic on canvas, with impressionist brush-stroke techniques.
