Story

Perched on a rugged mountaintop in the remote reaches of eastern Napa Valley, Kuleto Estate demonstrates the merits of taking the road less traveled. The winery was founded in 1993 by culinary entrepreneur Pat Kuleto and remains one of the most multifaceted and diverse vineyard properties in the world.

At elevations ranging from 800 to 1,450 feet, the 83-acre vineyard yields wines of depth, texture, and suppleness. Their complexity is owed in large measure to their meticulous growing conditions. The vineyard is divided into more than 100 separate microblocks, most less than one acre in size. Each block is farmed and handpicked when it is ready, and it’s not unusual for a harvest to last 50 days.

When the grapes reach the winery, they are gently hand sorted and processed through a gravity flow system capable of handling very small lots. Veteran Winemaker Dave Lattin, who has worked with this fruit for 13 years, is humble about his role at this point. Believing that most of his work is done in the vineyard, he takes the fruit as it comes in and sometimes co-ferments varietals to achieve lush, yet structured blends. The estate varietals speak to the remarkable diversity of the estate with aromatic opulence and layers of flavor.

A visit to Kuleto Estate is truly like no other. It’s located at the top of a twisting, narrow, one mile drive behind a locked gate, so it’s important to make an appointment in advance. Appointments for tours and tastings are offered daily at four times: 10:30, 11:45, 1:00, and 2:30. Guests can also arrange for the Essence of Cabernet experience, a hands-on tasting and blending session, or It’s our Winemaker’s Whim, a tasting with David himself.

Surrounded by wilderness in every direction, Kuleto Estate’s spectacular views complement its wines. They stir a passion in guests (which sometimes result in a marriage proposal) in a stunning spot they’ll never forget.
