Wine Time - Killer Cabs from Beau Vigne..!


Family…    An important word to Ed Snider, founder of Beau Vigne Winery.  With Napa Valley roots dating back to 1913, this family-owned winery sprung to life in 2002 and has been rocketing skyward ever since!

A true boutique-sized producer with production of roughly 4,000 cases per annum, the estate currently consists of 9 planted acres, 8 dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon and 1 acre split between Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.  The vines are located in the Atlas Peak appellation to the east of the valley at the Stags Ridge Vineyard & Ranch.  Grapes are also sourced from other top shelf vineyards such as Dutton Ranch and Lewelling. 


Killer Cabs = yum…!

With Ed crafting the wine and Kirk Venge consulting, Beau Vigne has been cranking out some pretty terrific Cabernet Sauvignons and blends.  Word has it that one Mr. Parker even granted a perfect score to the 2013 Beau Vigne Reserve..!  Indeed, the entirety of the Beau Vigne Cab-based lineup from the Estate through the Juliet and Romeo bottlings are all worthy of mention, as the quality is at a consistently top-tier level.  Other finely crafted varietals are represented in the portfolio, including Merlot, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. 



A recent visit to the tasting room in Yountville yielded a relaxed and educational tasting.  Beau Snider, son of Ed (remember “family”), is a knowledgeable and thoughtful host, a trait that seems to apply to all at Beau Vigne. Walk-ins are welcomed here, as well as more tailored visits via appointment.  Should you be the adventurous type, vineyard tours can also be booked in advance.

Well worth seeking out, Beau Vigne will be a highlight of any trip to the Napa Valley…

Cheers!
