DETERT FAMILY VINEYARDS

The Detert East Block is a rare jewel – 7 acres within the historic To Kalon Vineyard of old-vine Cabernet Franc whose lineage stretches back to the early history of grape growing in Napa Valley. Planted in 1949, it is thought to be the first planting of Cabernet Franc in Napa Valley and has been farmed by our family for over 60 years.

Replanted in 2015, the West Block is a 10-acre block comprised of six micro blocks each with a unique combination of clones and rootstocks. Extremely exciting for our family, this replant is an important investment in the future of the Detert Vineyard and our wines. The replant brings new diversity to our vineyard, including expansions of our family’s heritage clones of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as additional clones of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon which are new to the site. We will be harvesting our first fruit from this block in 2018.

The South Block was replanted in 1997 by our grandfather. He chose to plant Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon, a clone which has been very successful throughout To Kalon. This one-acre block has been the basis of our Detert Cabernet Sauvignon program. The alluvial soils here produce our exceptionally elegant, nuanced and age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon which showcases rich, dark fruit and mineral notes. We typically yield 175 cases per year from this block.
