The Grape

Petit Verdot is one of the six grape varieties used in red Bordeaux wines. As part of a blend, Petit Verdot adds a spicy character to the wine. As a standalone varietal, the grape produces wine that is dark in color, and rich in red and black fruit aromas with firm tannins. 

The Land

Villa San Juliette Vineyard contains a gravelly mix of shale and calcareous soils rich in lime and chalk, with rocky formations along its rolling hills. This combined with huge diurnal temperature variation--from hot days to cool night--allows fruit to ripen to its fullest potential.

The Season


The winter of 2017 brought huge amounts of much-needed rain. With one major heat spike in August, it was an overall warm year that brought a slightly smaller crop with good intensity and flavor.
