Today, only about 50 acres are planted to Charbono in all of Napa Valley – one fifth of one percent of the acreage planted to Cabernet. Why? Simple – Napa Cab is worth over 2x per ton than Charbono, and with the current price of farming and operating a winery in Napa, for most folks it just doesn’t make sense to leave that money on the table. Up at the northern tip of Napa, Calistoga is the only appellation left where Charbono is grown – perhaps because everything seems to move at a slower pace there, or that it’s a little historic town populated by the descendants of old European families that aren’t as bottom line-driven as the rest of the valley.
Lot 726 is your opportunity to taste a piece of Napa Valley history, sourced from a family-owned estate that’s one of the handful of producers in the area that still puts in the time and effort to keep this heritage grape alive. $32 under its original label if you’re lucky enough to ever find it, it’s yours for $18!
