Rombauer Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Rombauer Vineyards is situated north of St. Helena, 2.5 miles north of the intersection of Deer Park Road and the Silverado Trail. Rombauer Vineyards' main focus is the production of ultra-premium Napa Valley and Carneros varietals. Koerner Rombauer, together with winemaker Greg Graham, crafts a limited production of Carneros Chardonnay, Napa Valley Merlot, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel.
Their 10 acre estate vineyard, named Joan's Vineyard was planted in 1974 on St. George rootstock which was a great idea because it is hardy and resistant to phyloxera. Rombauer Vineyards purchased the vineyard in 1986 and honored an existing grape contract until its expiration in 1990. 
Since 1993, they have been transitioning the vineyard from the trellised-cordon configuration to the conventional head-trained and vase-shaped vine. The reasoning behind this change is that there is better exposure and flavor development in the fruit with the head-trained vine. The vineyard soil is very volcanic and becomes almost powder-like after cultivation, is well-drained and perfect for growing grapes. This vineyard is produced around the first part of October with the crop yield never exceeding 3 tons per acre of fruit.
Rombauer’s wines have won several awards including silver and bronze medals. The Rombauer family is dedicated to producing and marketing wine of advanced quality with the goal that the Rombauer Vineyards brand will become recognized around the world. They integrate the Rombauer family's values of hard work, dedication, commitment and integrity in all they do.  
There are many wonderful famous as well as some not so well known areas in California Wine Country that are just right for an enjoyable day of wine tasting. It’s always best to get off the beaten track and find the other gold that still exists and enjoy the beautiful scenery along these wine trails in this beautiful State.
