Our objective is to create world-class wines handcrafted in small batches, using grapes from two sub-appellations in the heart of the Napa Valley; the Rutherford Bench and the Oakville Hills. We seek approachability in their youthful state making each wine enjoyable early, but capable of aging for years to come.
At Thandel we focus on small vineyard sites in warmer microclimates from Mid-Napa Valley to Calistoga. Our winemakers believe in blending Old World traditions with New World philosophies to create modernistic, Bordeaux-style wines. Our growers tend to their vineyards by hand to unleash the potential of both the vineyard and grape. Committed to all five classic Bordeaux varietals, our winemaking style celebrates each wine’s location and vintage, reflecting the greatness achieved in each vineyard as well as the identity of the people who tend to them.
