An Afternoon with Robert Craig
Now celebrating three decades of producing distinctive Cabernet Sauvignons from vineyards in the highest, most remote reaches of the Valley, Robert Craig is a pioneer of Napa Valley mountain vineyards and a visionary in creating mountain Cabernets that emphasize ripe fruit, supple tannins, balance and integration.
During the 1980’s Bob developed over 300 acres of vineyards on Mt. Veeder and served as GM of the Hess Collection Winery. Spearheading the campaign to have Mt. Veeder designated as a special appellation district in 1990, he also consulted on the Spring Mountain Appellation’s creation. These new appellations located at Napa Valley’s highest elevations reinforce the importance of "terroir" in producing wines with enormous sense of place.
Bob’s long-held dream to hand-craft Napa mountain Cabernet materialized in 1992 when he founded his own winery with three friends. His ultra-premium Napa Valley winery is renowned for Affinity, a classic Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and powerhouse Cabernets from Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder and Spring Mountain AVAs. These award-winning, structured, and stylish Cabernets convey a unique personality derived from the soils, climate and varietal characteristics of each growing region. While the winery is not open to the public, WHWC pleased to welcome Robert Craig for an afternoon with us for your drinking education and pleasure.
Also on the program is a flight of Leroux red and white Burgundy
