Cave B Winery
Cave B Winery
The Cave B winery facility is carved into a hillside overlooking the cliffside estate vineyards. The exposed portions of its thick stone walls are made from the volcanic basalt deposits on the land. It thus benefits by the earth’s natural cooling effects while at the same time unobtrusively compliments the natural environment.
The selected hand-picked grape clusters arrive at the winery pad quickly and undergo individual grape hand sorting, de-stemming and then gentle crushing. All wines are made from the free run juice only, there is no mechanical pressing. The white varietals are barrel fermented in the finest French and American oak barrels. The red varietals are fermented in small open fermenters before beginning 2 years of barrel aging in the Cave. Each of the individual varietal estate blocks are kept separate from the other until just prior to bottling. In the case of Cabernet Sauvignon, for example, four estate Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, each uniquely different in site, soil type, length of growing season and terroir, are available for final blending by the winemaker.
Inside the intimate tasting room, a 17-foot tasting bar, handcrafted from used French oak wine barrel staves by highly-skilled local artisans sets the tone for focused tasting.
