The historic vineyard To Kalon, which means “highest beauty” in ancient Greek, is widely considered Napa Valley’s Grand Cru and is one of the most recognized vineyards in the world. Located in Oakville, this legendary site’s history dates back to 1868, and it was one of the first vineyards planted in Napa Valley. To Kalon was later replanted in 1994 by renowned grower Andy Beckstoffer, who elevated the quality and desire for what is now known as Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard.

It's always one of our favorite sites for consistently stunning Chardonnay fruit.
