Napa Wines - Red - Blackbird Winery
Blackbird Vineyards is located in the heart of the Oak Knoll district in the southern part of Napa Valley and was purchased in 2003, the prior owners were the Trefethen family. The vineyards are entirely planted to Merlot and over the years this vineyard has provided fruit to many very high end Napa wineries including Shafer, Viader, and Lail. The property is nearly 10 acres of which 7 acres are planted to vine.
An early success from this vineyard was when well-regarded winemaker Mia Klein created a vineyard designate from this vineyard for her 1999 Selene Merlot (her own label).
