Located in the cooler Coombsville area of southern Napa Valley, we are a small boutique winery that produces a handcrafted, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our just-under 16 acre hillside vineyard (11 acres planted). We have been making wine for ourselves since 1995 to better understand the nuances of our terroir and began selling our first "commercial" vintage of our 2003 Ackerman Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon in October 2007.
We sell direct-to-consumer and through restaurants and high-end retailers only in multiple states. Our total production averages about 700 cases per year. Our cabernet sauvignon wines are typically smooth, yet complex, with a deep berry body and a subtle spice, smoke, chocolate and black cherry finish. Due to our more temperate location in the southeastern part of Napa Valley, our wines typically tend to have alcohols ranging between 13.5% and 14.5% and have a moderate level of acidity which enables them to easily pair with food.
We barrel age for two years in new French Oak and then bottle age for an additional two years before we release each fall. We like wines that blend well with food and can be aged for 7 to 10 years or beyond for even more complexity. We also farm organically and received our CCOF certification in the fall of 2009. Currently, we are the only CCOF vineyard in the Coombsville area. We are available for tastings with advanced notice only. Please visit our website for more information.
We offer a small intimate environment for visitors in our vineyard, our carriage house or poolside vista. Pet our horses, sample produce from our organic gardens and experience our 16 acre certified organic vineyard in a relaxed yet personal manner. We can accommodate up to 8 to 10 people for a casual yet sophisticated wine-tasting experience -- a truly authentic way to savor Napa...By appointment only.View from Tasting Room: 180 degree pastoral views of the Coombsville hillside
