The Araujo Estate is a Chateau-style wine property located in the northeast Napa Valley. Its two primary components are the 40-acre Eisele Vineyard, and the winery and cave complex which we designed and built specifically to vinify Eisele Vineyard grapes. The Eisele Vineyard is one of the most respected cabernet sauvignon vineyards in the Napa Valley, equivalent to a premier cru Bordeaux. Warm days, cool nights and well-drained cobbly soils produce remarkable wines. The vineyard was established more than 100 years ago, and was first planted to cabernet sauvignon in 1964. When we acquired it in 1990 we began extensive renovation, refining the varietal mix and upgrading clone-rootstock combinations to realize the property's potential for joining the international elite of limited production wine estates oriented exclusively to quality. Araujo Estate wines emerge from a seamless cycle that begins in the vineyard and culminates in the rockbound stillness of the winery's barrel-aging cave. We work closely with an outstanding team: winemaker Francoise Peschon and consulting enologist Michel Rolland; and vineyard consultants Bob Gallagher (viticulture), Amigo Bob Cantisano (organic), and Jef Dawson (biodynamic), throughout the year on each factor influencing the ultimate quality of our wines. They each share our passion for quality and site-specific character.
