Our vineyards stretching out across the floor of the Napa Valley.

Robert Mondavi chose Oakville for the home of his winery in 1966 and planted cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and other key grape varieties with the goal of creating wines that could stand in the company of the world’s finest. The grapes chosen for our Oakville District cabernet franc are grown on low fertility, well-drained soils with optimal sun exposure, yielding fruit maturity and the aromatics which cabernet franc is prized for.
