A provenance is the record of ownership of a piece of art from its creation to the present. For connoisseurs, a work's provenance serves as a guarantee of a its authenticity. Our name reflects our goal of producing fine wines that are authentic works of art. In geology, provenance is the source of materials that make up an area's sediment. The origin of a vineyard's soil is critical since the soil drives the wine's quality, flavors and aromas, eclipsing viticulture and winemaking differences.
Our inaugural release, Provenance Vineyards 1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, established the winery's style: an elegant yet powerfully rich wine with deep, intense flavors that reflect the vintage and vineyard. With the 2000 vintage we expanded our family of wines to include Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon and Napa Valley Merlot. Since then we've built a portfolio of single vineyard and appellation designated Cabernets, Merlots, and Sauvignon Blancs.
