Palmaz Vineyards

Estate Grown Wines — Napa, CA

Deeply rooted in Napa Valley wine making history this family-run vineyard estate and winery cave combine tradition and technology to produce wines of distinction.

The Vineyard

At Palmaz, the focus is in farming the individual vine, not the vineyard. Tradition and technology seamlessly come together to give insights into the needs of each vine. While nothing replaces the knowledge gained from walking through the vineyard, personally touching each vine, technologies such as advanced Geographic Informational Systems (GIS) give the winemaking team an understanding of what vines need both above- and below-ground.

The Winery

The winery is built into an 18-story cavern in the flank of Mount George, providing it with not only all the benefits of gravity-flow winemaking but also the natural temperature control of a cave. By eliminating mechanical pumps from the winemaking process, gravity-flow design minimizes the turbulence that damages wines’ molecular structure.

The Team

Two generations of the Palmaz family have sought to bring innovation and invention to the ancient art of making wine. Their background in the sciences, passion for living life to the fullest and years of backbreaking work have resulted in a unique winery situated inside an 18-story cave that combines cutting-edge technology with a respect for winemaking tradition.
