We are a small family owned and operated vineyard/winery. When founders Fred & Nina Oliai first laid eyes on the 90+ acre ALTA vineyard in 2008, they instantly recognized the magic, and the amazing potential of the site.
We maintain a deep respect for the land at ALTA vineyard, tilling the soil as little as possible, and restricting the use of chemicals and fertilizers. Intense farming,gentle fermentation and old world cellar practices all combine to yield exceptional results. Alta barreled its first harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon in 2009 and sold a very limited amount when it was released in the Fall of 2011.
In 2011 we decided to extend our passion for making great wines from truly exceptional vineyard sites, our old world fermentation methods, and a minimum of intervention in the cellar to producing a Sauvignon Blanc wine. Our first vintage produced from the Block 4 vineyard in the eastern hills of the Napa Valley is now available for sale.
