PRODUCER

Clos Pegase

Clos Pegase is in Calistoga, Napa Valley. It was founded in 1984 by Jan and Mitsuko Shrem. Jan had spent several decades in the publishing industry in Japan before selling his company and devoting himself to learning winemaking. Today Clos Pegase owns about 400 acres of vineyards in Calistoga and Los Carneros. The estate is notable for its showcase winery, which was designed by celebrity architect Michael Graves and built in 1987. Also the Shrems' large collection of modern art is displayed inside the winery and outside in sculpture gardens. The estate produces a large portfolio of wines, from Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, to Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Rose and Syrah.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Calistoga

Calistoga AVA is one of Napa Valley’s newer appellations, having been given appellation status in 2010. It is notable for its volcanic soil, which is unusual in the Napa Valley. Calistoga also experiences the greatest average 24-hour temperature swing of any Napa Valley AVAs, which Calistoga grape growers insist give the grapes time to “cool down” at night, making for better balanced wines. The 1,500 Calistoga vineyard acres are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah, along with smaller amounts of other varietals. Calistoga is at the northern end of Napa Valley, northwest of the Diamond District and St. Helena AVAs. Longtime winemaker Bo Barrett of Chateau Montelena, which is located in the Calistoga AVA, proposed the creation of the appellation.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
