    Winemaker Notes

    Although 1998 was challenging, overall we achieved excellent results. We had a long rainy winter but when the rains retreated, they gave way to a splendid spring crowned by a symphony of color that turned everything alive. During that very delicate period of bloom, the vines were blessed with mild weather conditions. Because of the winter rains, the vines tended toward vigorous growth, but we managed to control the vegetation so that light could permeate to each leaf. The fruit was well positioned and the clusters were open and healthy. The summer was warm with some occasional heat spells. Any fear of damage by the heat was overcome by a very mild and long fall. Tannins were able to mature slowly and sugars gracefully waited for them to get soft and supple. Harvest was very late, but the wait was worthwhile. The flavors of the fruit were fully developed and the quality was quite outstanding.

    Quintessa, California
    Video of winery

    In the northeastern corner of Rutherfod lies Quintessa. The estate is one of the most scenic and geographically unique properties of the Napa Valley. When Agustin and Valeria Huneeus began to develop the property as a vineyard in 1990, they availed themselves of the most advanced viticultural research of the time. Valeria Huneeus, in keeping with her vision as steward of this land, has guided Quintessa's evolution from sustainable farming in 1990 to organic farming in 1995 and to biodynamic farming in 2000. The winery at Quintessa was built into one of the property's many hills. Its eco-sensitive design incorporates gravity flow, French oak and stainless steel fermenters specifically tailored to the diverse blocks of the Quintessa vineyard, and naturally cold caves.
