Yewell Vineyard St. Helena, Napa Valley
The Yewell Vineyard is a tiny property located on Ehlers Lane in the St. Helena sub-appellation of Napa Valley. The fruit from this vineyard has been coming to Monticello Vineyards since 1982, just after the vineyard was first planted. The rocky well drained vineyard produces intense small berried clusters that produce similarly intense wines. The wine from this vineyard is both a component of the Monticello “Jefferson Cuvee” Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the Corley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
About a decade ago, Nancy and Dave Yewell acquired this lovely St. Helena property. After farming it for a few years, an intensive replanting effort was initiated. Special planting materials, trellis design and systems were utilized to achieve the highest quality from this particular site. The Corley family has worked very closely and collaboratively with the Yewell family to create a stunning wine. While the wine continues as an important component of the “Jefferson Cuvee” and Corley Reserve, the 2006 vintage marks the first vineyard designated offering.
