Top Wines

History

The Silver Oak Napa Valley and Alexander Valley wineries have a combined total of 6 vineyards that produce these top quality wines. Napa is made up of Soda Canyon Vineyard (113 acres), Jump Rock Vineyard (15 acres) and Navone Vineyard (8 acres). Alexander is made up of Red Tail Vineyard (45 acres), Mirival (80 acres) and Geyserville Estate (12 acres). There are also some partner growers that are used depending on quality. This shows that the yields are relatively low but the quality is incredibly high.

Sustainable practices are used throughout the vineyards and wineries. 1464 solar panels are used to produce all the power and more that the estates use. There are various practices observed around the vineyards including integrated pest management which keeps potentially damaging bugs down by introducing predatory bugs into the system. Other sustainable practices use technology to the maximum benefit – soil moisture sensors and vine stress monitors enable the right amount of water to be used in irrigation. There is also a great appetite for recycling with 90% of the packaging recycled and even the winery itself being made from a recycled mill floor.

The sustainable practices are complemented by some forward thinking when it comes to winery necessities such as barrels. Silver Oak bought a 50% stake in the Oak Cooperage in 2000 and recently bought it outright. The winery’s view was that it made sense as they use white oak from the area – perfectly complementing the wines and terroir of Silver Oak.
