STORY

 

SALT vine began with the idea to present the best winemaker in Napa with a proverbial blank check to secure the best grapes available and craft the best wine possible.  This idea came to fruition in a partnership between 100 point winemaker Mike Smith and Proprietors Marc and Ashley Wade. Beginning with the 2014 vintage, SALT vine has secured the best fruit Napa Valley has to offer.  Mike carefully manages the vinification of each parcel of fruit separately.  Of the resulting "micro-lots", only the best wines will qualify for the final blend. The barrels not deemed worthy of the final blend are sold off.  Only the finest lots are assembled in the creation of SALT vine.

 

While an extraordinary amount of effort goes into the production of SALT vine, we strongly feel that the enjoyment of it should be easy.  Great wines are one of life's true pleasures.  They need not be accompanied by pretense or overt formality...they are best paired with great friends and good times.
