Checkerboard Vineyards is a hillside estate nestled in the mountains on the west side of Napa Valley. Our vineyards produce extraordinary wines rooted in a profound feeling for the land that bears our vines and yields our rich fruit. We have taken meticulous care to farm and groom our meadows and woodlands to preserve native growth, protect wildlife and nurture a unique mix of rootstock and classic Bordeaux clones. Devotion to the site and a near perfect combination of climate, exposures and altitudes has allowed us to fulfill our dream of a classic Napa Valley wine coaxed from our stony soils. We are proud to introduce Checkerboard wines: an elegant expression of place and our passionate commitment to the craft of winemaking.
