Our inaugural release of 1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon established Provenance as a Napa Valley Cabernet House, but the winery’s character was defined in 2003. After a few fine-but-not-amazing vintages of Estate Cabernet, we decided to pull out the vines… without our investors’ permission. In their place, we planted Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, rarities amongst the sea of Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. Due to the unique soil of our Estate, these varietals thrived. This willingness to break the rules in the spirit of great winemaking is what defines Provenance Vineyards.
