A small family-owned and operated vineyard and winery on Atlas Peak in Napa Valley, founder Fred Oliai first laid eyes on the 90+ acre ALTA Vineyard in 2008, and instantly recognized the magic and amazing potential of the site. Maintaining a deep respect for the land, the winery tills the soil as little as possible and restricts the use of chemicals and fertilizers. It is this intense hand farming, gentle fermentation and old world cellar practices that combine to yield exceptional results.
