Vineyard Notes


Mitsuko's Vineyard is 365 acres in the Los Carneros appellation within the Napa Valley. The rolling land of this vineyard has a broad range of soil types, elevations, slopes, and aspects which create countless distinct microclimates. After careful study, eight different grape varieties were planted at this vineyard utilizing every bit of its diversity. In Mitsuko’s Vineyard these varieties receive ideal cooling breezes blowing in from the San Pablo Bay which create the slow, balanced growing season these varieties need to build complexity. The vineyard takes its name from founder Jan Shrem’s late wife with whom he became devoted to building Clos Pegase winery and making it an iconic destination in Napa Valley.

Winemaker Notes


Picked and sorted in the vineyard, the grapes were destemmed and pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery, whilst they were still cool from the morning fog. To preserve the fresh aromatics, the juice was allowed to clarify overnight and then racked off the heavy lees and sent to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. A long cool fermentation took place lasting around three weeks. The wine was then aged sur lie in tank for a further four months before a light filtration and bottling.
