Leweling VineyardMyriad Cellars Lewelling Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Lewelling Vineyards farms one of the oldest continuously-owned family vineyards in the Napa Valley. What is just as remarkable is that the Lewelling family has stayed true to their strong agricultural roots generation after generation. The fifth and sixth generations are now running Lewelling Vineyards and the seventh generation is already running among the vines. The vineyard is located in one of the Napa Valley’s historical neighborhoods with the whose who of on each side of the estate – including the Hayne Vineyard, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, Beckstoffer Bourn, and the old Edge Hill property.
The vineyard is eighty planted acres located at the base of the Mayacamas mountains in St. Helena. Because of its proximity to the slopes, the vineyard has benefited from thousands of years of soil erosion coming down from the hillsides. While the soils are not nearly as deep as further out in the valley floor, quantity of production is not necessarily as important when your focus is on making premium wine. For this type of wine, these alluvial deposits/bench land type soils are ideal. This part of Napa is one of the sweet spots for growing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Myriad is honored to make wine from this incredible site.
