Vineyard {511} Our Story Greetings from Diamond Mountain!

Winter has been a wet one!  Lots of snow for skiers but, more importantly, the reservoirs are full and the drought appears to be over.  No snow this year at Vineyard 511, but it brought back memories of the last snow we had - see vineyard update below.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Vineyard {511} Release Updates
New Year, New Vintage

We have been patiently waiting for our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon to complete its aging process - 30 months in 100% French oak plus 1 year in the bottle - and the wait is almost over!  We will be releasing our 2013 vintage in mid-March, so keep an eye out for details to come.

Vineyard {511} Chardonnay
Vineyard {511} Carneros Chardonnay

We're proud to share that we've received tons of praise for our new Vineyard {511} Carneros Chardonnay, which we released in October 2016. 

"We just shared this bottle with some friends and it was gone immediately! Also, they want some bottles for themselves. It was just delicious."
-- Jodi D., Enounter {511} Member

This very small production wine is available exclusively to our wine club members.

Remembering the Great Snow of 2002

Once in a great while, Napa is visited by the snowman.  Last visiting in 2002, the snowman created some beautiful scenes throughout the valley.  Here's one from Vineyard {511}.

Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF)

In November, the 6th annual Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) kicked off a week of 120 prestigious screenings with celebrities, culinary demonstrations, wine tastings, winery dinners, industry panels, and parties in 13 venues up down the picturesque four villages of Napa Valley--Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga. Additionally, in fulfilling its mission as a non-profit organization, the Festival brought hundreds of Napa County students to the Lincoln Theater to screenings of documentaries to inspire them about the art of independent filmmaking.

Vineyard {511} 2016 Harvest Party

As the leaves were slowly changing from green to orange in Napa Valley, our good friends gathered in our outdoor entertainment area in mid-October to celebrate our 2016 Harvest and to toast the release of our new and delicious Vineyard {511} 2015 Carneros Chardonnay. It was such a hit, we couldn't pour enough of it! It is available to our wine club members and at wine dinners.

Vineyard {511} What We're Reading
On Someone Else's Nickel

Playing tennis in the Volley in the Valley tournament, a fundraiser for the St. Helena Hospital Foundation, we met Tim Ryan, an award-winning sports commentator.  Tim's career included broadcasting NHL hockey, NFL football, boxing, and ski racing at the Olympic games.  His recently released book, On Someone Else's Nickel, chronicles his career and provides some fascinating insights into the personalities of many well-known sports figures.  We were lucky to have Tim discuss his book at our 2016 Harvest Party, where he really enjoyed our 2012 Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon.  Tim also graduated from the University of Notre Dame, so he has a lot in common with Ed.
