Phoenix Vineyards













Description

We give Phoenix Vineyards StarStarStar stars: Yelp

The Bader family has been in the wine grape growing business since the family bought eight acres in the Western Napa Valley Together the family works to produce Phoenix Vineyards' small output of 2,500 cases annually. Now three generations are involved in the wine-making business, producing estate wines crafted from some of the best vineyards in the Napa Valley.

This winery is all about attention to their grapes and to their clientele. The first vintage was a 1991 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, and in the following years the varietals expanded to include an Estate Merlot in 1995 ("Little Blackbird," an award winner, with a raspberry cassis and a sandalwood finish), and in 1999 with an Estate Pinotage "Song of Africa," a "symphony of cranberries," according to the Baders. Phoenix continues to explore as it grows, including a spicy, peppery Pinot Noir Reserve, and the green apple and tropical fruity Chardonnay Reserve.

Tours of Phoenix Vineyards are available, but reservations are necessary, as it is, literally, a family-run business, so phone or email first. There one can sample Phoenix's own Estate Olive Oil, made with the exact same care as their exquisite wines. Certainly the Bader family lives by the motto: "Wine is for the enjoying of life.
