Etude

Etude's founding philosophy is that winemaking begins in the vineyard long before the harvest and that inspired grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in an authentic expression of the varietal. This philosophy is brought to life on the Etude Estate Vineyards, tucked away in the far northwest corner of the esteemed Carneros Appellation, close to the elegant state-of-the-art winery and tasting room.  

Etude's celebrated Pinot Noirs and its small production of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Rose of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are vinified from grapes grown on the Estate while the opulent Cabernet Sauvignon is from Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena, Coombsville, and Calistoga.  The consistent high quality of the grapes Etude grows and sources, combined with the skill and experience of the winemaking team, explains why Etude is recognized as one of America's premier artisan wineries.

Visit our contemporary tasting room located just minutes from downtown Napa off Highway 12/121.  Enjoy a private wine and food pairing available on weekends by appointment or just stop in and discover the elegance of Etude wines.
