When Luna's founders first laid eyes on the Luna property in 1995, they instantly recognized the magic and the amazing potential of its estate vineyard. Plus, it was perfectly located along the Silverado Trail. So they bought the property and followed their dream, building a winery that paid tribute to the varietals that set Napa Valley apart. They planted the visionary varietal Pinot Grigio on the estate vineyard.
At Luna, we take a truly hands-on approach to our craft each step of the way, from the vineyard to the barrel to the bottle. From the farming methods that sustain the rich and bio-diverse ecosystem of our Estate Vineyard to the dense rocky subsoil of the Game Farm Vineyard, we believe that the most important part of winemaking happens in the vineyard. Consequently, our winemaking team maintains a deep and abiding respect for the land, tilling the soil as little as possible, and restricting the use of chemicals and fertilizers. Hand picking and multiple sorting techniques are complemented by our proven practices of native yeast fermentation and extended maceration, which combine to yield exceptional results.
Today our story continues with the more recent additions of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Zinfandel, extending our passion for making great wines, made truly great by our exceptional vineyard sites, our natural fermentation methods, and a minimum of intervention in the cellar. It's all contributed to the critical acclaim we continue to receive for our artisanal family of wines. And to years of enjoyment - past, present, and future.
