Founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting classic Bordeaux varietals from the Napa Valley for nearly 30 years. This winemaking tradition has grown to include seven meticulously farmed estate vineyards, located throughout the various microclimates of the Napa Valley. Focused on quality and consistency, these estate vineyards are an essential element in making wines of distinction. One of the first wineries to pioneer Merlot as a premium varietal, Duckhorn Vineyards now makes several elegant Merlot and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings to showcase the characteristics of its various vineyard sites. In addition, the winery produces a fullflavored Sauvignon Blanc, and an exceptional red Bordeaux blend under the Decoy label.
Goldeneye began making premium quality, cool climate Pinot Noir from its estate winery in the Anderson Valley in 1997. Blending grapes from four estate vineyards planted to 19 clones of Pinot Noir on 11 different rootstocks, Goldeneye is dedicated to crafting wines of refinement and elegance from a rich palette of terroir-inspired
fruit. Reflecting the Mendocino Coast’s unique marine influences, sites and soils, these grapes create an elegant, sophisticated Pinot. To further enhance natural depth and complexity, winemaker Zach Rasmuson selects only a small percentage of the finest fruit for each vintage, before applying small-lot, artisan winemaking techniques. The winery also produces a fresh and enticing, sister Pinot Noir called Migration.
