St. Supery Wines will be visiting and showing their best wines including the Virtu and Elu Bordeaux-style blends and then the Dollarhide Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc & Cabernet Sauvignon.  This is a great chance to try the best of this family-owned Napa winery.

St. Supéry acquired Dollarhide ranch in 1982, a cattle and horse ranch since the late 1800s. Dollarhide is a 1500 acre property with steep and rolling hills, some flat lands and seven lakes. St. Supéry has planted fewer than 500 acres in grape vines at Dollarhide, so most of the property remains in a natural state, and is home to a diverse collection of flora and fauna. With elevations ranging from 600 to 775 feet above sea level, the diverse terrain and unique microclimate at Dollarhide are especially accommodating to Bordeaux grape varieties – those traditionally grown in Bordeaux, France – particularly Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. This estate vineyard is the origin of most St. Supéry wines and gives our wines distinct characters derived from the Dollarhide terroir.
