Behind the Label
- The Maison
In 1977, Dr Su Hua and Peter Newton had a vision to transform a hillside into a 558-acre estate. Newton Vineyard soon became a Napa Valley trailblazer, renowned for launching Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay, one of the first unfiltered wines to be produced and sold in the US.
A natural philosophy
Across 118 acres, 112 vineyard blocks are planted at different elevations, each with a different grape varietal, soil type, sun exposure and microclimate. This provides each plot with a distinct character, giving the resulting blends balance and finesse – a rarity in Napa Valley.
