Ashes & Diamonds, ‘a love letter to the Napa Valley of the 1960s,’ has set out to revive this storied era’s pioneering energy. Kashy Khaledi, whose father Darioush owns his own esteemed, eponymous winery near-by, built Ashes & Diamonds through collaboration, seeking the participation of Napa’s great contemporary voices in viticulture and enology. Kashy was compelled to investigate the nuances of the vineyard’s original plantings, Cabernet Franc and Merlot from 1986, and has meticulously done so through organic farming and restrained winemaking.
Kashy's unique perspective goes beyond the vineyard and into not only the cellar, but who is in the cellar! Partnering with legendary winemakers like Steve Matthiasson and Diana Snowden-Seysses to run the show was one the first step. One-off cuvées might be made by other local stars like, for example, Dan Petroski of Massican and Larkmead fame. All the winemaking decisions support intensely focused, organic farming.
