DBA Wine Information
DBA is our proprietary red blend; comprised of the four varietals we grow on our estate located on Atlas Peak in the Napa Valley.
Our vineyards are planted on an ancient volcanic flow. The vines are laid out in eleven micro-blocks; each one with its own unique terroir.
In general each of the blocks shares the same challenging farming conditions; rocky soils, hillside terrain and significant marine influence.
As such, our vines produce low yield and our grapes enjoy slow ripening, which results in extended hang time.
DBA, named after proprietors Debb and Bob Almeida, is a layered, nuanced wine; and reflects the love and passion of our more than 45 years together.
DBA can be enjoyed now and, like a beautiful relationship, will continue to improve over the years.
