Proprietary Blends | US
Normally $75, this lush, warm, rich red is $39 today! Read on for the fascinating history of this Napa vineyard!
Canard is one of the great, yet virtually unknown vineyards in the Napa Valley, located between St. Helena and Calistoga on Hwy. 29. We flipped for this red from the fantastic ?16 Napa vintage (not to mention the price!!) and you will love it too. We only wish there was more...don't miss!
Drinking perfectly right now! While it lasts!
About the Producer
Canard Vineyards have been creating hand-crafted wines in Napa Valley since 1984. Each year, they produce nine single vineyard wines, each one expressing a different terroir. The residence has a long history in the valley, being built in 1859 and was the original homestead of Reason P. Tucker, who gained notoriety for leading the search and rescue efforts to rescue the survivors of the ill-fated Donner Party. Rich and Carolyn Czapleski purchased the Canard Vineyard in 1983 and turned the surrounding grounds into something magical. Rich's philosophy is "if you take care of the vines, the vines take care of you." Rich and Carolyn have assembled a small but talented team who share their desire to make the finest wines possible, while maintaining great integrity and respect for the land.
