For nearly 20 years, our team has applied their dedication, skill, and talent to creating wines that reflect the personality and soul of our vineyard. We individually farm 20 micro-blocks within our 16-acre estate to optimize the uniqueness of our diverse soils and numerous clonal selections. The resulting wines exhibit immense complexity year after year, with each vintage bringing forth its own distinctive nuances.
As longtime residents of Northern California and lovers of wine, we long dreamt of owning our own small vineyard in Napa. With an entrepreneurial spirit, our family purchased Gemstone Vineyard in 2007 and made that dream a reality. Over the years, we have immensely enjoyed becoming members of the Napa community and working with the Gemstone team to further develop our two estate wines.
From our family to yours, we hope you enjoy a bottle of Gemstone tonight with a great meal and friends, and dust some off for a special occasion many years down the road.
Michael, Amy and Carole Marks
