An easy hospitality and warm sense of humor is juxtaposed with a more serious sensibility when making wine. Using the best of Napa Valley's organically grown grapes and the most traditional winemaking techniques, the winemaking team strives to produce wines that deeply reflect the soils and climate from which they emanate.The way we make wine at Frog’s Leap is fundamentally linked to the way we grow our grapes. We accept the premise that the greatest of wines are those that most truly reflect their soil, climate and circumstance (collectively referred to as “terroir”.) It is the winemaker’s job to stand back and let the natural beauty of the grapes show through. We pick a “natural” ripeness emphasizing the harmony of flavor elements. We use natural yeast and malo-lactic fermentations. We handle the wine minimally and we avoid unnecessary filtrations. We use oak barrels to enhance, not disguise the wines. All of these practices help in allowing the full character of the fruit to come forward and to reflect the influences from their terroir.
