Winery Description

TEXTBOOK wines are so named because they consistently exhibit the characteristics that define classic Napa Valley and Oakville District wines: in short, TEXTBOOK wines are ‘textbook’ examples of the finest that Napa Valley has to offer. Owner and winemaker Jonathan Pey draws upon a lifetime of experience in fine wine:  he has overseen winemaking in France, Italy, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand. All grapes are hand-picked from the very best sustainably-farmed Napa Valley vineyards.  Boulder Block vineyard is the primary source for TEXTBOOK Cabernet and is located directly next door to Screaming Eagle; while the main source for the Merlot (Holmes Vineyard) is adjacent to Opus One and Paradigm, and just downslope from Harlan Estate.  The hand-sorted grapes are fermented in small lots, fined in the traditional method with organic egg whites and bottled unfiltered.
