Founded in 1982 by Tony Soter, Etude produces world-class Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Carneros Pinot Noir. The underlying philosophy at Etude Wines is that winemaking begins in the vineyard, long before the grapes are harvested. Winemaker Jon Priest and Viticulturist Franci Ashton believe that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker and results in a wine that is grown, not made. Though modeled on the best from Bordeaux and Burgundy, the Etude Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir wines speak clearly of their contemporary California origins, combining rich, ripe fruit with an elegant structure and opulent mouthfeel.
