Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from cool-climate Carneros? It's coming.

May 14, 2019

Pine Ridge winemaker and general manager Michael Beaulac said the discussion to plant Cabernet Sauvignon in Carneros started eight or nine years ago in part because Pine Ridge was not producing as much Chardonnay as it used to. The company, which has 29.5 acres of Chardonnay left in Carneros, wanted to make the switch to best utilize the land, he said.
