HIDDEN IN THE HEART OF RUTHERFORD, Quintessa is a 280-acre site that reflects a diversity of geology, biodiversity, exposures and microclimates. Inspired by this distinct property, founders Agustin and Valeria Huneeus believed that it was destined to become one of the world’s great wine estates. Today, a total of 160 acres are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carménère on 26 vineyard blocks. Each block is farmed—organically and biodynamically—harvested, and vinified individually to preserve and enhance the nuances of the land. Inspired by the land’s natural grandeur, the Huneeus family dedicated themselves to capturing the beauty and harmony of this land in the form of a great wine.

Your host will share the story of Quintessa and pour barrel samples selected from among the 26 vineyard blocks that eloquently express the diversity of soil and microclimates that bring complexity to every bottle of Quintessa. Next, taste the current vintage, followed by a rare library vintage. The experience concludes with a guided walk through the Quintessa winery and caves.
