At an elevation of 1,800 feet, CADE Estate Winery’s wines experience a unique temperature inversion. During the day, conditions are much cooler than those on the valley floor; evenings, on the other hand, grow warmer with the setting sun. This gives CADE’s grapes extended hang-time, allowing them to ripen fully and evenly for wines with great density and balance. The mountainside soils, characterized by volcanic ash and minerals, provide beneficial stress to vines that further enhances the character of this unique terroir. And of course, the elevation of the winery, sitting on 54 contiguous acres, makes for some unreal panoramic views of Napa Valley.
