The Terraces is a family-owned, small producer of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel in the eastern foothills of Rutherford. We also make a limited quantity on Chardonnay and Petite Sirah. Our ranch is known as Quarry Vineyards in deference to the 125 year old rock quarry on the property. Although we grow grapes for several other Napa Valley wineries, we reserve seven acres of our oldest and best vines to produce The Terraces wines. The Terraces Zinfandel clone taces its roots to the vines planted on the ranch in the 1800s. This clone, the "Werle" clone produces an open cluster with small berries, which is recognized and coveted for its intense color and distinctive aromas and flavors. The Cabernet clones were selected from Caymus and Grace Family Vineyards. We firmly believe that the character of our wines, their intensity and their color are the results of our viticultural practices which produce very low yields per acre and are picked at optimal maturity. We produce 1500 cases annually. We release our Chardonnay in June and our red wines in September.
