“It’s not about me and the team, there’s a bigger picture here. It’s all about the properties - their soils, the people that were behind them historically, their place in the community. And then how we found them, and what we’re doing with them now.”
A third-generation Napa Valley native raised in a farming family, David Abreu is a California rancher who knows how to coax the best from the land he farms. Spending his youth working in Napa’s original vineyards, David honed his skills and developed an intimate knowledge of the valley’s diverse winegrowing terroir. Over time, his gift for recognizing exceptional sites led him to four distinctive vineyards that comprise the core of Abreu: Madrona Ranch, Thorevilos, Lucia Howell Mountain and Cappella. Meticulously maintained, their sculpted form bears David’s unmistakable stamp, each producing distinctive fruit that can only come with an uncompromising commitment to quality. With each harvest one hundred barrels are whittled down to 12,000 bottles of wine – four single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon blends that reflect a lifetime of hard work, passion and conviction.
