Five Vintners Wines

Five Vintners Wines Krisi Raymond represents the fifth generation in her family to grow grapes and make wine in the Napa Valley. Her family roots run deep, dating back to 1876 when her great-great-grandfather Jacob Beringer, together with his brother Frederick, established Beringer Brothers Winery just north of St. Helena. The next generation continued to produce wine through Prohibition for medicinal and sacramental purposes. It was in 1933 with the repeal of Prohibition that Roy Raymond began his career in the wine industry at Beringer Brothers Winery. In 1936 he married Martha Jane Beringer, grand-daughter of Jacob Beringer. Their two sons, Roy Jr. and Walter, continued the family's winemaking tradition at Beringer Brothers Winery after attending college. With their share of the proceeds from the sale of Beringer in 1970, the Raymond family purchased 90 acres of prime vineyard land south of St. Helena on Zinfandel Lane and founded Raymond Vineyard & Cellar. They planted a variety of wine grapes on the property and crushed their first vintage in 1974. Now, nearly 30 years later, Krisi Raymond is stepping out on her own as a grape grower and winemaker. With just one acre of newly planted Sauvignon Blanc and a handful of select grape growers she plans to produce fine Napa Valley wines. Krisi will focus on her favorite varietals: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc.

  Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
A full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe, bright berry fruit.
  Sauvignon Blanc, Admiral's Vineyard
Fruit forward and refreshing, with loads of citrus and melon. A real summer wine!
  Syrah, Napa Valley
Full of ripe plum and wild berry fruit with a smoky backdrop.
  Zinfandel, California
The 2003 is bigger and bolder than my previous vintages due in part to the addition of fruit from the Mauritson's Rockpile Vineyard. Rich and full bodied with lots of extracted red berry fruit, firm tannins and an appealing hint of allspice.
