Napa Wines - Red - Eisele Vineyards
The Eisele Vineyards is now owned by the Pinault family that also owns Chateau Latour.
First planted to vines in the 1880s, Eisele Vineyard sits in the northeast Napa Valley, just east of Calistoga at the base of the Palisades Mountain range. Farmed organically since 1998 and biodynamically since 2000, the site has been principally dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon for the last fifty years. Beginning with the inaugural release bearing the Eisele name in 1971, this iconic vineyard has received consistent recognition for possessing one of the great terroirs of Napa Valley. The wines invariably express the exceptional depth, elegance and longevity which are hallmarks of the Eisele Vineyard.
The Eisele Vineyard has been farmed organically since 1998, and biodynamically since 2000. For two reasons: the belief that these practices result in better wine, and our commitment to caring for this pristine vineyard in the most thoughtful and conscientious way.
There are more than five hundred olive trees on the Eisele Vineyard estate, many dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. The predecessors, Daphne and Bart Araujo, revived these old and once-neglected trees and began producing an extra-virgin olive oil in the 1990s. We continue the tradition, applying the same organic and biodynamic farming practices we use in the vineyard.
