Producer: Duckhorn Vineyards is a brand within the Duckhorn Portfolio, a collection of well-known, premium wine labels that also includes Paraduxx, Goldeneye, Migration, Decoy, Canvasback, and Calera. We highly recommend that visitors to Napa Valley stop by their St. Helena tasting room on Lodi Lane to enjoy a sampling. The covered porch among the vines is a relaxing place to sip and get out of the rain or hot sun.
