The vineyards chosen for growing our Dark Matter fruit includes two family properties on Howell Mountain, Napa Valley. The first vineyard, Four Sisters, is owned by the Mondavi sisters and has two acres planted solely to Zinfandel fruit for our Dark Matter Zinfandel. The second property, Rocky Ridge, is owned by the parents of the four sisters, Janice and Marc Mondavi, and provides the perfect location for our Cabernet Sauvignon.
Both vineyards are sustainably farmed and managed by their father’s closest friend, Jim Barbour, and is considered one of Napa Valley’s most sought after viticulturist. Jim’s meticulous attention to detail and extraordinary green thumb enables us to maintain and develop the unique flavors and perfect ripeness prior to harvest.
