One of Napa's oldest family owned wineries, Larkmead Vineyards has been a standard bearer in Calistoga for decades. Kate's parents bought the property in 1948 but it was the second generation, with Kate and her husband running things, that transformed Larkmead into the heralded estate it is today. Acclaimed winemaker Dan Petroski directed winemaking from 2013 until summer of 2021, when Avery Heelan took over as Dan focused on his own brand. Heelan comes to Larkmead with experience at Screaming Eagle, Domaine Boyer-Martenot, and Capel Vale Winery.
With a dizzying mosaic of gravel, clay, and loam thanks to a history of alluvial flows, Larkmead's position allows them to craft wines possessing immense complexity. Classic and structured without being broody, these wines age gracefully for decades.
