Robert Mondavi purchased the Wappo Hill Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District in 1969. The name Wappo, meaning 'brave', speaks to the history of this acclaimed vineyard site and the Native American tribe which lived on the hill and other sites throughout Napa Valley. The majority of grapes for this wine were selected from a single vineyard block on Wappo Hill where the Sauvignon Blanc expresses an intensity of flavor.

Pts. James Suckling "This layered and firm-textured wine shows good concentration and depth. Fermented in steel and concrete eggs, it is aromatic in citrus, crisp green apples and light toasty mineral notes. Smooth in texture but with nice acidity interwoven. Drink now." - Jim Gordon, JamesSuckling.com, February 8, 2024
