In August 2006, six years after we submitted our design to the Napa County Planning Department, we finally completed our boutique Napa Valley winery. A simple, yet beautiful, state of the art redwood structure houses stainless steel tanks, a destemmer, a press, and all sorts of other ridiculously expensive equipment. Our winery leads to a 6,000 square foot cave which was drilled into the hillside under vineyard Block 3. The caves provide a cool, energy efficient, humid space for barrel ageing our wines. Our Napa Valley winery and caves have become the perfect home for our grapes, the wine, and all of us here at Jericho Canyon Vineyard.
