Widely recognised as California's first Cabernet-only estate vineyard, Diamond Creek was established in 1968 by visionary pioneer, Al Brounstein. He first planted Bordeaux varieties on secluded Diamond Mountain in the northern Mayacamas Range of the Napa Valley. The wines produced here are long-lived, highly sought-after expressions of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, revered by connoisseurs the world over.
The small 8 hectare estate is geologically and topographically diverse, divided into three famous vineyards, Volcanic Hill, Gravelly Meadow and Red Rock Terrace. Just a few hundred cases are made each year. Wine from the tiny 0.3ha Lake vineyard is only produced in exceptional vintages – a mere fourteen times since 1972.
Diamond Creek’s vineyards are a stone’s throw apart but each has its own unique microclimate and terroir which create distinctive, characterful and classically-styled wines which have been consistently praised by the critics.
