At Priest Ranch, we are dedicated to the ensuring quality in even the subtlest nuances – from our vineyard to the wine in glass. We take a minimalist approach to our winemaking, encouraging the highest expression of personality, intensity and distinction in every bottle we produce.
Priest Ranch wines began in 2007 with our first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. Our Winemaker and Co-founder, Craig Becker, hasn’t looked back since. Honoring our Napa Valley heritage by cultivating wines with distinctive profiles, Priest Ranch is committed to a forward-thinking mindset and a unswerving commitment to quality at the highest level.
We have explored the diversity of the property by blending multiple blocks into every wine produced. These multi-block wines showcase the impressive quality and represent the property at the highest level. Each vineyard is uniquely tended based on the grape varietal.
Our wines are recognized for their adventurous and unique character, crafted both in the vineyard and the winery to reflect the richness and diversity of their source. Being in control of our vineyards, we can adapt the viticulture practice to each block.
Our approach to viticulture is based on craftsmanship, and the core aim is to get our fruit to reveal the terroir. Each block has its own character, sometimes in contrast with the next one, therefore attention to detail for all these nuances ultimately make the difference in the wine.
Our fruit is so expressive that the mountain fruit flavors shine through with minimal processing. The result is intensely rich, yet beautifully integrated and very approachable wines. Whether you’re looking for an uncommon varietal such as Grenache Blanc, or a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, each of our wines provides showcases the unique expression of our Somerston Estate.
