In 1995 Julie and Frank purchased 120 acres in and above the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. We quickly learned if we wanted to plant grapes, we had to do it right away. An anti-hillside planting law was being put into place. We quickly found the perfect Vineyard Manager, Jim Barbour. We were permitted in 1996 and planted in 1997. Our three Cabernet hillside vineyards slope over 35 degrees, going up from the Valley floor to 900 feet. We are lucky to have these beautiful, rocky, steep vineyards, totaling 9 acres. Our first mature crop was in 2001. This fabulous wine was released in 2004. We added a Sonoma Chardonnay and a Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir to the Husic portfolio. Palm Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon is also a family member, a second Cabernet produced from our three estate vineyards. Along with Julie and Frank, sons FJ and Paris, age 13 and 11, comprise of Husic Vineyards. The boys are well rehearsed in the picking of the grapes, crush, getting wine from the barrels (thieving), the bottling process and helping to entertain our clients. They are our future, and we hope to hand the business to them one day. We are proud to share these beautiful wines with you.
Julie, Frank, FJ and Paris Husic
