A centuries-old winemaking legacy plants roots in Napa.
Over 25 years ago, Spain’s oldest winemaking family, Codorníu Raventós, ventured to a new world: a sea-facing hillside in the Napa Valley, with rocky
soils and a favorable coastal climate. It was here in Los Carneros, that we planted new roots, building upon a 460-year winemaking legacy to create the next
generation of Estate Grown, artisan wines. We named it Artesa.
MORNING FOG. GOLDEN SUNSHINE. PERFECT GRAPES.
Wine Flavors Impossible Elsewhere
Artesa’s 350-acre Estate is located just north of the San Pablo Bay, where persistent breezes and steep hillsides allow our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes to mature slowly and develop concentrated, bright flavors impossible elsewhere.
A winery inspired by harmony with nature.
Artesa is a testament to the harmony between nature and architecture, a skillful example of interaction between structure and environment. Designed by renowned Barcelona architect Domingo Triay and built in the early 1990’s, the avant-garde structure was conceived to blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. On the interior, two stories below the main entrance, is the meticulously managed barrel room where small wine lots are fermented, aged and artfully blended using a mix of ancient methods and modern techniques to create the luxurious wines for which we have become known.
