Ghost Block Wine Co Tasting 9/2/16

In 1877 the 9th bonded winery in California was established. That same winery is home to their portfolio of wines: Ghost Block, and Oakville Winery.  The owners of Bonded Winery #9 began purchasing vineyards throughout Napa Valley 110 years ago. Their first vineyard was purchased with a single $10 gold coin in 1903.

Today the family owns approximately 1,000 acres in Napa Valley.  Ghost Block vineyard is named in honor of Napa’s pioneer winemakers who rest in a tiny 150 year old cemetery on the north edge of Yountville. Graced with perfect drainage and sunny exposure, Ghost Block Vineyard is a jewel; 16 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, an heirloom, passed down through a single family for over 100 years. Coveted by celebrity winemakers, the fruit from this and nearby vineyards has been the cornerstone of many of Napa’s “Cult Wines”. The secret is out. Production is very limited.

We look forward to seeing you Friday night!
