VINROC WINE CAVES

VINROC derives its name from our rock strewn mountain vineyard, where the elevation provides the perfect climate; and our rock hewn wine cave, where the consistent temperature & humidity is ideal for storing and aging our wine.

Micro crafted Cabernet Sauvignon

Located on the eastern slope of Napa Valley at an elevation of 1600 feet,  our vineyards are above the fog line and experience sunny days and cool nights. Our vines struggle  through the volcanic rock & red soil,  producing  low yields of highly complex & intense fruit.  

Micro-Harvest
We pick one ton at a time, and harvest only those clusters which are at the peak of ripeness . The grapes are carried into our adjacent wine cave in small  
picking boxes, rather then  dumped  into large harvest bins, and are immediately hand sorted and de-stemmed.

Micro-Vinification         
Our winery is completely self-contained within our cave which was specially designed with custom European equipment for a low volume, high quality boutique operation. Each ton harvested is separately fermented and barreled for
two years in French Oak, which allows us to track individual batches from the vineyard and throughout the winemaking
process until blended.
