Of the many visitors to Napa Valley, few have heard of Chiles Valley, a Napa AVA (American Viticultural Area) designated in 1999. (Pronounced ch + aisles). Reached by a winding road, this off-the-beaten track area is a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of the Napa-Rutherford-St. Helena area. The 2020 fires devastated part of Chiles Valley, but fortunately many growers and producers suffered minimal damage to the vines, including Volker Eisele. (They did suffer smoke taint, however, which means there won’t be a 2020 vintage for the affected fruit.)

Volker Eisele is a true family winery—started by a couple with a love of grapes and still run by the family. Volker and his wife Liesel purchased the property in the 1970’s whereupon Volker “became a scholar of grape growing.” The Eisele’s became known for growing some of the best grapes in the Napa area. Initially they only sold grapes, but eventually moved into wine making. Volker died in 2015 but Liesel still lives in a house on the property.

Catherine Eisele, daughter-in-law, took my partner and I on a walking tour of the vineyards. We learned about the Eisele’s sustainable and eco-friendly farming practices, the effect of nearby vegetation on growth patterns of vines, microclimate differences in the vineyard, water shortages, frost prevention, and more. The Eisele’s philosophy is that great wine comes from great grapes. It was clear to me that this family pour their heart and soul into growing extraordinary grapes.

After the tour, we sat in front of their historic barn and tasted the current releases—2019 Sauvignon Blanc (co-fermented with Semillon), 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2016 Terzetto (co-fermented 1/3 Cabernet Sauvignon, 1/3 Cabernet Franc, 1/3 Merlot), while Catherine provided insight into the winemaking. All wines were wonderful, but I especially enjoyed the Terzetto and its plum-cherry aroma and complex, elegant taste.

Family wineries, like Volker Eisele, are more interesting and intimate than the corporate wineries that seem to be on the increase in Napa. When I walked to my car with a box of Volker Eisele wine, I knew I had high quality organic wine, and that I was directly supporting a family owned and operated business.

Antiga Araujo Estate Wines, renomeada Eisele Vineyard em 2016, foi fundada pelo casal Daphne e Bart Araujo. Localizada em Calistoga, é uma vinícola de produção limitada, voltada para o cultivo orgânico e agora, biodinâmico. Os vinhos são bons.

Volker Eisele Family Estate produces organically farmed for forty years, the Estate from the Chiles Valley appellation of the Napa Valley, including a limited Terzetto proprietary blend.

Three separate wines are produced by the Volker Eisele estate; the Terzetto, Gemini, which is their white wine, and their Cabernet. The Alexander is their special reserve cabernet, which is just out of this world. 1200 cases are produced from the cabernet, but only 125 for the Alexander, so it is in very high demand, and usually will sell out very quickly after being introduced.

Actually this was a trip with my adult daughter and son. My daughter and son-in-law have visited several times and Catherine greeted her like an old friend. I quickly felt like I was sharing time with a friend also. As others have expressed, the walk and tour of the vineyards was interesting and enjoyable. Catherine was very informative as she shared the history, growing and wine making process. The tasting was a very relaxing experience as we sampled the excellent wines. This was a great way to begin our Napa visit.

We tasted this wine when in NYC for a birthday dinner at Keens Steakhouse. Loved so much we decided to make this a place to visit this January, when we visited Napa with our son and girlfriend who are just back from being deployed . Catherine greeted us warmly, and was delightful. She took us on a tour of the vineyard , and it was amazing . Breathtaking views. Then back to the barn for a tasting which was so well done . Gorgeous, bright wines, beautiful venue. But Catherine was the best part! Felt like family when we left. Truly wonderful tasting ! The view up close of the vineyard you won’t get anywhere else! Don’t missed this tucked away gem! Thanks Catherine, the experience was outstanding !

We went to Volker Eisele Family Estate because we were staying in Pope Valley. Catherine took our appointment and was very friendly on the phone. Once we arrived Catherine greeted us and was very friendly and fun. We took a tour of the grounds and then went in to taste. They provided a nice cheese, dried fruit and nut plate with the tasting which was very nice. All four of us enjoyed all their wines and the experience. We highly recommend a visit to this winery.

Walk through the vineyards with the owner or his wife and learn about the farmng that goes into the grapes. Great wine starts with great fruit! Spend time tasting and enjoying all the hard work that goes into making their delicious wine. My favorite stop in Napa, always welcoming and truely extraordinary wines. Beautiful property, unique winery (no glitz, just the original winery building from the 1800's). A must visit!
