Over the years, the Napa Valley has pioneered the cultivation of top quality Bordeaux varietals in America. We’ve seen producers rise to “cult wine” status and in turn demand a hefty price tag. Recently these wines have started to disappear from neighborhood restaurants and wine shops only to be replaced by more affordable imports. Cultivar is here to reclaim Napa Valley’s lost real estate on these wine lists and retail shelves-reasonable and affordable without sacrificing quality.

Napa Valley
Napa Valley is considered one of the top wine growing regions in the world. The combination of Mediterranean climate, geography and geology of the valley are conducive to growing quality wine grapes. Located in Northern California, about 50 miles northeast of the San Francisco Bay Area and about 60 miles west of Sacramento, Napa Valley is 30 miles long and 5 miles across at its widest point. The range of grape varieties grown in Napa has evolved over the last 150 years but Cabernet Sauvignon has risen to be the star performer. Napa Valley received its own AVA designation in 1981. Within the Napa Valley AVA, 15 subappellations have emerged that possess distinct microclimates and terrains, including Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are some of Napa’s other prominent grapes.
