"When I purchased the St. Helena property that would become Marciano Estate there were twenty acres of vines planted here. It was 2006, and in that first year I tried to make the best wine that I could with the existing vineyard. It was a good wine, but it wasn’t an outstanding wine – it wasn’t the wine that I sought to make. I decided to pull out all the vines and replant with four different rootstocks better suited to the varied soil conditions of the property. I asked David Abreu to join me, to help with the replant and to manage the new vineyard. During that process I replanted only ten acres out of the twenty – on only the best soils of the vineyard. Our first kosher vintage was 2017 – a fine growing season in Napa Valley by all standards and the year our new vineyard came into maturity." Maurice Marciano
Marciano Estate Blanc comes from a one-acre parcel on the estate where the soils are perfect for Sauvignon Blanc.
