    Winemaker Notes

    Pale straw in color. The complex nose is richly expressive blending Jordan almond with lemon aromas. The palate has flavors of lemon cream and guava with a crisp clean finish. To achieve the crisp minerality and bright acidity in the wine, we harvest at night for optimal fruit freshness that ensures our signature style Sauvignon Blanc.

    Maxville Lake is nestled deep in the Chiles Valley District. The land around Maxville Lake was formerly known as Rancho Catacula. In 1844, Governor Manuel Micheltorena gave Joseph Chiles the 8,000 acre Rancho Catacula Land Grant. The land was inhabited by Spanish settlers and farmers who tilled the land into an agricultural area.

    In the 1960s, the Edward Keith family purchased over 1,000 acres of the Rancho Catacula Land Grant and turned a portion of it into the Bar 49 Summer Camp. This camp provided children with an opportunity to experience farming, horseback riding, fishing, boating, water sports and arts and crafts.

    The first grape vines were planted t in 1974. Today, about 100 acres are planted include Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The volcanic soil these vines are planted in creates a prime growing condition. The Keith’s practiced sustainable farming and saw themselves as protectors of the land. In order to preserve the integrity of the property, the land was placed within the Napa Valley Land Trust. This guarantees the land will never be subdivided and it is only used for agricultural purposes.

    In 1996, construction began for the most impressive tasting room and aging facility in the Chiles Valley. The underground aging facility can accommodate up to 2,000 barrels.

    The winery was purchased by Maxville Lake in 2014. Maxville is now the guardian of the land. In 2016, they renovated the building and began constructing guest houses. Vintage after vintage, the goal is to create wines that exhibit remarkable consistency of style and elegance for all occasions. Let the land speak for itself through the high quality of Maxville wines.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
