Perched on a rocky outpost high above the city of Napa, Heron Lake catches the cool breeze coming off San Pablo bay as it rises up into the Vaca Mountains. The vines are planted in extremely shallow volcanic soils, where formations of quartz, granite and feldspar frequently rise to within just a few inches of the surface. The intersection of this coastal climate and rugged soil profile creates wines that express a daring combination of freshness, acidity, depth and texture, along with the vineyard’s signature chunky “white quartz” minerality.
