Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard
St. Helena Appellation
One of the top vineyards in California, Beckstoffer's Dr. Crane Vineyard was originally planted by Napa pioneer Dr. George Beldon Crane in 1858. This historic vineyard property is located west of Route 29 in the city of St. Helena, within the St. Helena Appellation. The gravelly loam soils have been replanted (1998) to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The wines from this vineyard are rich, intense, and have a depth of black fruit flavors that are unmatched.
