Nigel Kinsman is something of a trail blazer in the Napa Valley. It was just a matter of time before he made his own wine and that time came in 2016, when, together with his wife Shae, they achieved a long-held dream; they crushed their first fruit.
Their vision is for site-driven, singular expressions of origin and history. The winemaking is characteristic of Nigel’s deftness of touch. The wines are fruit lead and characterful; they celebrate the interesting edges rather than polishing them away.
Their objective is ‘to make compelling wines that sing of their origins’. Nigel and Shae have an instinctive understanding of what makes a vineyard truly special. There are currently two wines, Rhadamanthus and Anjea, attest to this intuition.
