Located in the mountains of the Atlas Peak appellation, 'Astrale e Terra' is Italian for 'heaven and earth,' and with the magnificent location of the vineyards, the name's inspiration seemed natural. Although it is only 40 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the area is free from the fogs that are drawn up into the rest of the Napa Valley. Farming 30 acres of vines, Astrale e Terra's total production is limited to less than 2000 cases per year.
Astrale e Terra produces "Arcturus" a Red Wine Blend. Arcturus is named for the 4th brightest star in the sky, astronomers classify Arcturus as a "Red Supergiant".
Astrale e Terra also produces extremely limited quantities of Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate Syrah, Estate Merlot and Syrah Rose.
