SLOAN ESTATE is nestled in the eastern hills of the Rutherford appellation of the Napa Valley. Planted in 1997 to just under 14 acres of vines, the vineyard is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. The unique layout and direction of the rolling slopes provide for warmth and sunshine to achieve optimal ripeness and physiological tannin maturity. The Pan Family and the SLOAN ESTATE team are devoted to the mission of producing the highest quality of wines possible that are the truest reflection of the terroir of their hillside estate vineyard.
The Napa Green program is supported by a wide variety of groups including the Sierra Club, the Audubon Society, and the University of California. The Napa Valley Vintners, along with Fish Friendly Farming, the Napa Valley Grapegrowers, the Napa County Farm Bureau and others developed the Napa Green program.
