Tucked away on the corner of Reuss and Tesla Roads in the upper Livermore Valley is a 64-acre site, situated on a sloped, alluvial bench with well-draining, “outwash” shaly loam soils from the surrounding hillsides. The Ghielmetti family chose this spot, intending from Day One to establish LV’s premier cru property. Planted over the course of two years in 2001-2002 by well-known Napa consultants Jim Regusci and Cary Gott, the vineyard is home to 10 different grape varieties organized into 19 separate blocks.
