Tristant Vineyards: 100% Organic Napa Valley Reserve
Mirifice: A Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot Blend
Tristant Vineyard is nestled among the oak trees on Bale Lane in the northeast area of Calistoga, Napa Valley. It is farmed by grape grower Bill Tristant and Ricardo Guzman. The vineyard’s grapes are known for their full-bodied ripeness and rich flavors that reflect the unique terroir of the area. The grapes are harvested in the cool morning maintaining their natural fruit flavor and acidity with minimal handling. The resulting wine is aged in French oak and tended by Girard Zanzonico, winemaker. He created 350 cases of this wine from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot giving it seductive, complex, full-bodied flavors.
adj. 1. Extraordinary 2. Wonderful 3. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot 4. A red wine with seductive, full body flavors. Mirifice is a result of viticulture and oenology with a lot of passion and motivation.
My name is Bill Tristant. I was born in the Southwest of France on a small winery in the Basque countryside. From the time I was old enough to walk, I watched the wine making process, looking on with delight as the crushers stomped the grapes then joining with the other children to complete their work. This and many other happy experiences set the stage for my wanting to own my own vineyard some day.
At an early age I had the opportunity to immigrate to this country. Now, after many years, my dream has come true....
May I share it with you?
