At Heitz Wine Cellars, we practice sustainable and certified organic farming in our vineyards in order to preserve our rich agricultural heritage and contribute to a healthy future for everyone who calls the Napa Valley home.
"The decision to farm our ranches organically has proven to be a success for the health of the vineyards and allows for the true characters that each site possesses to come through in the complexities of the wines."
- Kathleen Heitz Myers, President
Our agricultural operation has gradually expanded to encompass 1000 acres which are located in some of the Napa Valley's finest winemaking appellations.
Those prime parcels include the ranch that surrounds the winery property and sweeps the eastern hills of St. Helena, our acreage on Zinfandel Lane and the rich farmland of the Trailside Vineyard in Rutherford. Our majestic Valley Oak Ranch is contiguous to the steep slopes of our Ink Grade Vineyard, and our Linda Falls Vineyard is a tiny jewel on Howell Mountain.
Then there is our original site about a mile south of downtown St. Helena which we all especially treasure — the much-loved vineyard that frames Heitz Cellars' Sales & Tasting Room today.
We have planted grapes on 375 of these acres, carefully selecting areas that convey the incomparable breadth of geography and climate that makes the Napa Valley the ideal place on earth for winegrowing.
