The word 'Provenance' (rhymes with renaissance) is derived from the French language, and means "origin," or "source."
A provenance is the record of ownership of a piece of art from its creation to the present. Connoisseurs use a provenance as a guarantee of a work's authenticity. Our name reflects our goal of producing fine wines that are authentic works of art.
In geology, provenance is the source of materials that make up an area's sediment. The origin of a vineyard's soil is critical since the soil drives the wine's quality, flavors and aromas, eclipsing viticulture and winemaking differences.
