“We are the winemakers, and we are the dreamers of dreams”

Ashes & Diamonds Winery is a love letter to Napa Valley as it was in the 1960’s. Located on Highway 29 in Oak Knoll District, Ashes & Diamonds is one of the limited Napa classics that deserves to find a home in your glass and cellar.  I don’t remember the last time these wines were available in NC.  Take advantage, and you’ll be glad you did.  Winemaker Diana Snowden Seysses spends half her time making wines in Burgundy, and she brings a beautiful and classic French style to her Napa winemaking.

Ashes & Diamonds Red Hen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll District

Red Hen Vineyard is another of Bart and Daphne Araujo’s biodynamically farmed sites.  Located in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains, across Highway 29 from the A&D Vineayrd, Red Hen has well-draining soil that naturally pulls rainwater down from the mountains.  This encourages fine tannins and finess in the resulting wine. Red Hen’s Cabernet has quiet power, poise and impressive length with silky, weightless tannins that are the hallmark of this benchland site.
