About Spottswoode Vineyard

Part of the old guard in Napa Valley, Spottswoode was established in the first wave of vine planting, back in 1882.

Over the past two decades, Spottswoode has been one of the most consistent Cabernet producers of California, with a track record for graceful bottle aging.
