An Audacious Dream
The Pahlmeyer story begins with an audacious dream given life through the dedication and hard work of an inspired Napa Valley visionary: Jayson Pahlmeyer.
Jayson was captivated by the idea of a Napa Valley wine of such exquisite quality, complexity and prestige that it would rival the best of Bordeaux, specifically Château Mouton Rothschild. This historic estate had, at the time, recently been elevated to Bordeaux First Growth classification. This inspired Jayson’s insatiable thirst for adventure and reaffirmed his belief that Napa could be elevated to iconic status. Jayson’s dream of creating a “California Mouton” was born.
The Jayson collection features Napa Valley iconic varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, along with a signature red blend combining the best of Napa, as well as a special Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. These wines offer exquisite structure, balance, tension and finesse. Under the leadership of winemaker Katie Vogt, meticulous attention is paid in the vineyard and cellar to allow the highest, clearest expression of the site to shine through.
Defined by Mountain Fruit
Jason Pahlmeyer understood that making wines with exceptional concentration, complexity, and ageability required venturing to extremes. That’s what drew him to the rugged parcel of vines on the ridgeline of Atlas Peak that would become his iconic estate vineyard. That is why, more than 35 years later, Pahlmeyer remains defined by mountain fruit, possessing the soulful character born of demanding terroir and exacting fieldwork.
