THE STORY TO KNOW

Since 1903 our family has harvested grapes in Napa Valley supplying some of Napa Valley’s most prestigious wineries with our fruit. In 2006 we launched our own brand; Ghost Block. Our finest fruit has been chosen to make exceptional and collectable Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each of our single vineyard wines are produced from our certified organically grown vineyards.

Ghost Block MorgaenLee Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is made in the French Sur Lie fashion. This allows the wine to have a rich texture while retaining the crisp and mouth-watering qualities that only Sauvignon Blanc can offer.

Ghost Block Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our Rock Cairn Vineyard. These 32 or so acres offer us a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with that signature flavor profile that the Oakville AVA is so famous for.

Ghost Block Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a vineyard in a beautiful location of 16 acres in Yountville. Blessed with great sun exposure on a hillside setting, Ghost Block Single Vineyard Cabernet is our flagship wine, very limited and allocated.

Ghost Block Pelissa Vineyard Zinfandel comes from a 60 acre vineyard in the Oakville AVA that contains 9 acres of Zinfandel within.

The “ghosts” honored on the label are pioneer winemakers who rest in
peace in a tiny 150-year-old cemetery near the Rock Cairn Vineyard this wine is from. The family who makes the wine has harvested that vineyard for at least 100
years.
