Fantesca Estate & Winery

Fantesca Estate & Winery Fantesca is an estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon. This property was originally the dowry of Caroline Bale, when she married Charles Krug in 1860. Even then, it was recognized as prime mountain vineyard land. A Cabernet from this vineyard made by Hannah Weinberger won one of the first awards for a wine from the Napa Valley in 1889. Today the vineyard stretches over terraces and hills and adjoins the cave and the winery.

  Chardonnay from Carneros
Elegantly balanced, this polished wine is produced from rare and exotic Hyde clone grapes grown in Los Carneros region. It displays tropical notes with a touch of oak and a satin finish. Only 200 cases produced.
  Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
The first vintage to come off our property was bottled as Shadow Lace. We bought the property before this wine was released. It has never been rated and is only available via the internet and in our home State, Minnesota. This wine shows a hint of rich, sweet, fresh herbs such as rosemary, thyme and slight pine. This herb note is subtle and offers a beautiful contrast and complexity to the rich fruit character. On the palate, the wine is impeccably balanced. It has soft, well integrated tannins that seem perfectly matched to the level of fruit.
  Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon shows the finesse and rich style that are the hallmarks of Spring Mountain District. Fantesca carries notes of spice and berries; the body is rich, supple, and complete.
