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, Rosé of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are vinified from grapes grown on the Estate while the opulent Cabernet Sauvignon is from vineyards in the prime Cabernet zone, representing the major benchland sub-appellations of Napa Valley – 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.
Come visit Etude’s light-filled tasting room in Carneros. Designed by San Francisco architect Matt Hollis, the beautiful building is consistent with the tone and feel at Etude – handcrafted elegance.
Walk-ins welcome seven days a week from 10 - 4:30. Tastings are generally 30 minutes and cost $20 per person for tasting of five wines.
