NAPA VALLEY | U.S.A
Ric Forman's vineyards, founded in 1979, cover 28.5 acres in Saint Helena and 60 acres on the Rutherford Bench. The Saint Helena vineyards near the winery are divided into three parcels, each planted to the four Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The vineyards are managed meticulously by hand - each vine is tended to no less than 16 times in a growing season. Viticulture, the driving force of quality in wine, is pursued without compromise in Ric Forman's vineyards.
