Sequoia Grove, founded in 1979, is a family-owned winery located on Route 29 in the heart of Rutherford, Napa Valley’s most prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon appellation. For more than 30 years, Sequoia Grove has been recognized for its commitment to crafting award-winning wines that emphasize finesse and balance from its Estate vineyards as well as through decades-long relationships with top Napa Valley growers.
A Sense of Place
Sequoia Grove wines are appreciated for their elegance and highly concentrated fruit; they are crafted to express the unique Napa Valley terroir. The Rutherford AVA in Napa Valley is a beacon of quality. Here the deep and well-drained alluvial soils, abundant sunshine and cooling fog from San Pablo Bay, mingling with warm inland temperatures, create the ideal location to produce award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon. Many grape varieties thrive here, but it is Rutherford-grown Cabernet Sauvignon that has become famous for producing wines of exceptional flavor and complexity. Indeed, as legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff asserted, "it takes Rutherford dust to grow great Cabernet."
Sequoia Grove’s tasting room is nestled into one of the last remaining groves of the majestic Sequoia sempervirens in Napa Valley, inside a barn with more than a century of history in Rutherford. Outside, the Sequoia Grove Estate Vineyard with its 18 acres of vines, surrounds the property. When the winery outgrew the barn, a separate winemaking building was built, along with Napa Valley’s first completely subterranean cellar, a notable achievement given the Napa Valley’s notoriously high water table. The cellar maintains a year-round temperature of 58 degrees Fahrenheit.
