Where The Magic Happens
In order to produce some of the finest wines in Napa, Levendi Winery sources its grapes from world-class vineyards across the valley such as the Howell Mountain AVA, Stagecoach Vineyard, Coombsville AVA, and Levendi’s own Chardonnay Estate Vineyards.
To the north, the vineyards of the Howell Mountain AVA lie far above the valley floor, allowing for cooler days and warmer nights: a more regulated spectrum of temperatures throughout the day in comparison to sea-level vineyards. The soil consists of two distinct types: tufa, a dry decomposed volcanic ash, and an iron-rich red soil. The blend of soils make for a dry and nutrient-poor foundation, but despite the stress it puts on the vines, the small meager clusters result in flavors unmatched in structure and intensity.
A ways south of Howell Mountain and flanked by rugged wildlands, the Stagecoach Vineyard produces some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the state. Nestled on the southern face of Pritchard Hill adjoining Eastern Oakville, the Atlas Peak vineyard boasts an elevation of 900-1700 feet which, combined with rocky volcanic terroirs, creates profound complexity and character.
Further south still lies the Coombsville AVA: a temperate region tucked in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains known for its proximity to the San Pablo Bay. The cool, marine-influenced climate means a longer growing season, resulting in wines with fresher blackberry and blueberry flavors, more acidity and tartness, and moderate potential alcohol—all of which make for an incredibly balanced and refined palate.
Last but certainly not least is Levendi Winery’s own Chardonnay Estate Vineyards. The southern region marries an unwavering commitment to sustainable, land-loyal growing practices with terriers rich in complexity that makes for some of the finest Chardonnay and Rosé in Napa. Every glass of Levendi showcases not just the exceptional environs, but the care and pride taken in the estate vineyards.
