Looking down the rows of vines of the To Kalon Vineyard. The leaves have turned golden as cooler weather approaches.

When Robert Mondavi chose the To Kalon vineyard as the home for his new winery in 1966 he remarked, “It was a vineyard with a distinguished history and a magical nature. Ideal soils, sunlight, and rain-to my eye, the vineyard was a treasure.” Situated on prime benchland in west Oakville, the low-fertility, well-drained soils combine with optimal sun exposure to yield rich, complex flavors and peak fruit maturity. The Sauvignon Blanc for our 2019 Fumé Blanc Reserve was sourced exclusively from the Monastery Block, whose vines were planted in the mid-1990s. The Sémillon for the blend comes from P South, a block of To Kalon just south of Oakville Grade Road.
