Nestled in the heart of Napa Valley, St. Supéry is a leading 100% estate grown winery in the Napa Valley. With a vineyard in Rutherford and the Dollarhide Estate Ranch in Northeastern Napa, it produces approximately 8% of Napa’s Sauvignon Blanc. St. Supéry recently expanded its Sauvignon Blanc plantings by 42 acres with the acquisition of a third vineyard in Rutherford. This brings the winery’s Napa Valley estate land holdings to 1,600 plus acres, with over 575 developed into vineyards.

The St. Supéry Estate winery in Rutherford is surrounded by thirty five acres of vines that thrive in the Mediterranean climate of warm days, cool nights, and a long growing season. Bordeaux varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, excel in the famed mineral-rich sandy clay soil called “Rutherford Dust.”

To the northeast, the winery’s Dollarhide Estate Ranch is a valley within a valley consisting of 1,500-plus acres that is home to seven lakes, abundant wildlife, and heirloom fruit trees. Five hundred acres of this varied landscape are vineyards with elevations ranging from 600 to 1,100 feet, thirteen soil types, and unique microclimates to produce estate Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, estate blends and the Dollarhide Estate single vineyard wines.

St. Supéry’s sustainability is certified locally, regionally, and nationally. It continues to be recognized for its sustainable practices in all areas of the winery. Napa Green-certified Vineyard and Winery designations require regular recertification and continual measurable improvement. The program represents a soil-to-bottle approach to environmental stewardship and winemaking, integrating holistic management practices at every step of the wine production process.

A visit to the winery offers an immersive encounter with a demonstration vineyard, culinary garden, and intimate tasting experiences. Visitors may choose from the Winemaker’s Selection, Cabernet Collector’s, or the Five Bordeaux Varietals tastings. Director of Hospitality Jamie Jamison noted, “Winter is one of my favorite seasons here in Napa Valley. I enjoy spending extra time with guests and focusing on our Cabernet Sauvignons and additional winery-only releases like Malbec and Petit Verdot.”

Chef Vincent Sanchez delights guests with the winery’s educational Taste of The Estate wine and food pairing experience, available Thursday through Saturday by appointment. Chef Vince honed his skills in San Francisco and Napa Valley, holding positions at Aquerello and Ad Hoc. Committed to farm-to-table cuisine, Chef Vince creates seasonally focused pairings, using ingredients sourced from the St. Supéry estate garden and orchard to highlight the art of wine pairing techniques. Recent pairings included Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc with salmon and stone fruit and Rutherford Estate Merlot with grilled swordfish.
