Heitz Cellars, USA
Below are the details for Heitz Cellars, USA.
|Winery Name:||Heitz Cellars, USA
|Other Details:||When Heitz Cellars opened in 1961, the Napa Valley had fewer than twenty wineries. Today there are more than two hundred. The original winery on St. Helena Highway is still open to the public as a sales and tasting room for visitors and is a glimpse into the origins of Heitz Cellars.
Within a few years Heitz Cellars had outgrown the original premises and purchased the present 160 acre residence and ranch on Taplin Road, a narrow fold in the hills just east of St. Helena. The home property was originally developed as a vineyard and winery in the 1880s by the Swiss-Italian family of Anton Rossi. The beautiful old stone cellar built in 1898 has made the transition through time and the Heitz family continues to age fine wines within, carrying on the tradition of the art of fine wine making in the Napa Valley.
Heitz Wine Cellars has also expanded to include 350 acres of prime vineyards situated in the heart of the Napa Valley. From 1985 onward these vineyards have produced most of the grapes for Heitz wines, except the two legendary vineyard designated Cabernet Sauvignons from "Martha's Vineyard" and "Bella Oaks Vineyard."
