Bavarian Lion Vineyard
Appellation: Knights Valley
Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
Bavarian Lion Vineyard is a shining star of unheralded Knights Valley, situated in the saddle of the Vacas Mountain range between northern Napa Valley and Alexander Valley. Protected from Pacific Ocean influences more than other Sonoma County growing regions, its warmer climate, slightly higher elevation, and volcanic soils all combine to create ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varieties. Owned by Pierre Ehret, the sprawling, 100% solar-powered ranch features a multitude of different elevations and exposures, allowing our winemaking team plenty of variety to choose the best blocks and assemble complex blends. A hidden gem of the wine world, we hope our efforts will continue to bring this vineyard more of the acclaim it absolutely deserves.
