For the Quilt Napa Valley, we focused on vineyards with well-draining, low-nutritive
soils that stress the vines. The result of these soils is a grape crop with extraordinary
concentration of flavor, color and texture. While the majority of the fruit comes from the
floor of the Napa Valley to achieve the richness and elegance desired, we also relied on
some grapes grown in the well-drained gravelly soils of the side slopes along with high
elevation in the mountainous areas for a blend with more structure and complexity than we
could have achieved had we used fruit grown solely in a single region. Napa Valley AVAs:
Oakville, St. Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Oak Knoll, Calistoga, and Howell Mountain.
