    Paoletti Estates Winery: All the red grapes are grown in Calistoga, an ideal area for making great reds. We are making a small amount of chardonnay from our vineyard west of the city of Napa. The Estate has 11 acres planted; One to Sangiovese, one and a half to Malbec, one to Merlot, and the remaining to Cabernet. We also have a vineyard across from Montelena on Tubbs Lane with 20 acres of Merlot. We are totally self sufficient. We harvest by hand, and use all the finest French barrels. 50 % new every year. We only use them twice. Time in barrels depends on the variety. Cabernet & Merlot up to two years, and Sangiovese much less. Chardonnay is barrel fermented up to 11 months in oak. We don't however believe in over oaking anything. Charles Hendricks is our very talented winemaker out of Davis. He is making a great name for himself in the industry.

    One of Napa Valley’s oldest wine growing subregions but last to gain appellation status, Calistoga occupies the northernmost section of the valley. Beginning at the foot of Mount St. Helena, its vineyards stretch over steep canyons and roll out onto the valley floor. The soils in Calistoga are volcanic, which means they are heavy in minerals, low in organic matter and allow good drainage for vine roots, creating less green growth and more concentration of flavor within the grape berries.

    Summer days are very hot but most nights cool down with moist ocean breezes sneaking in over the Mayacamas Mountains or from Knights Valley to its northwest.

    Cabernet Sauvignon is the area’s star variety with Zinfandel coming in a strong second, though the latter commands far less price per tonnage so continues to be outshined by Cabernet in vineyard acreage, save for some important exceptions.

    Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
