Located in the Red Hills in California, Thorn Hill Vineyards is nestled between Mount Konocti and Mount Saint Helena just above Napa Valley. The micro climates and gravely volcanic soil offer the ideal topography for harvesting premium Cabernet and other top quality red varietals.
Thorn Hill is committed to quality with a guiding principle that all their wines reflect their distinctive terroir while embodying the hallmark characteristics of each varietal.
One of Thorn Hill’s trademarks is their choice of single vineyard lots with carefully selected clones known to produce ultra premium fruit.
We are committed to hand harvesting and hand sorting each grape cluster prior to crushing. This is a meticulous and labor-intensive method, but it ensures that only the finest, fully matured grapes are used in the wines.
This approach includes small lot whole cluster pressing, destemming, cold soaking, extended maceration, barrel-to-barrel racking and bottling without filtration.
