vīvō

from the Latin word
meaning
alive

Grapes for vīvō are sourced from one of the best and most respected Chardonnay growers in the Carneros region in Napa Valley. The heirloom Burgundian selection was developed over 22 years ago, planted on a gentle hillside on shallow clay soil and an alluvial riverbed. Carneros is the southernmost sub-appellation of the Napa Valley, located just above the northern tip of the San Francisco Bay. It is influenced by fog and southerly breezes from the bay and the Petaluma Gap, which keep it cooler than the rest of the Valley and allow for a long, moderate growing season that is ideal for Chardonnay.
