Freemark Abbey has held exclusive sourcing rights to Sycamore Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon red wine since 1980; the vineyard consistently produces one of our most highly acclaimed Cabernets. Located on the famed Rutherford Bench, adjacent to the Staglin Family, To Kalon, Heitz Bella Oaks and Harlan Estate vineyards. Sycamore Vineyard produces small berries reminiscent of mountain fruit, with intense extract of color and flavors and complexity.
For over half a century, Napa Valley has enjoyed a reputation interchangeable with premium wine. It has gained this reputation for its wine grapes in California for a reason: the amazing complexity that skilled winemakers can coax out of it when grown in optimum locations. They know all about this in the great, old chateaux of Bordeaux, as well as at many younger, but equally prestigious, wineries in Napa Valley. The world’s best wine grapes are grown in these respective regions.
Today, Freemark Abbey is many things to many people: a team of some of the most respected winemakers working in Napa Valley; a historic 1886 winery and pristine estate, with an enthusiastic hospitality program that highlights both; a collection of source vineyards up and down Napa Valley, representing several of California’s most distinctive terroirs; an extensive—and unparalleled—wine library that stretches back decades; and a winery that, because of its long history and international reputation, is one of Napa Valley’s true ambassador brands.
