(0) No Reviews yet


As the largest private vineyard owners in Napa Valley, the Laird family has an incredible toolbox for their own label. Their '15 Chardonnay is a thing of beauty, erupting from the glass with layers of freshly baked apple pie, lemon custard, slate and spiced citrus. Add the talents of consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs, and you have an awesome track record of consistency and quality. Laird just keeps delivering the goods year after year!

Details

From his roots as a third-generation farmer from Virginia tobacco country, Ken Laird has earned a unique distinction. He and his family are now the largest private landowners of Napa Valley with more than 2,000 acres to their name. Their first acquisition in 1970 was sparked by a field walk with none other than Robert Mondavi, and the Lairds entered the vineyard business in partnership with the venerable Oakville winery. They grew slowly (and took more than a few chances on unproven sub-regions) and now boast land holdings that have provided fruit to everyone from Mondavi to Far Niente to Joseph Phelps. With Paul Hobbs calling the shots in the cellar (Robert Parker has called him "one of my favorite winemakers"), the Lairds are able to select their favorite sites from their substantial grape resources for their own stellar wines. With their state-of-the-art production facility (utilized by more than 60 boutique producers), it's truly a can't-miss combination of exceptional fruit and winemaking prowess. You'll be just as impressed by this lineup as we were!
