Marlee's Vineyard

Marlee's Vineyard

Marlee's Vineyard (1976) was the first estate ever planted by Duckhorn and is our home vineyard. The Napa River marks the western border and winter floods have deposited layers of silty river-bottom soil over time, making for a rich, well-drained sandy-loam profile. The site is ideally suited to grow Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon; the grapes from this site are the backbone of our white wine program. There couldn't be a more optimal situation than harvesting grapes only yards away from the winery—this proximity allows the fruit to be picked at the peak of ripeness.
