Duckhorn has become synoymous with quality- wines that have been served to White House Presidents and Heads of State for decades.
Despite the comic mockery heaped on the Merlot variety in the popular film Sideways, Duckhorn vineyards brought Merlot to the top of the chart with their 2014 'Three Palms' Merlot.
Founded in Napa Valley in 1976, Merlot had been its specialty from the start, since its first vintage, in 1978, the winery has tapped one of the valley’s most storied vineyards: Three Palms, named for the trio of palms that grow in its midst. However, boasting a large portfolio of wines, Duckhorn is not only famous for their prized merlot. The 2016 Duckhorn Chardonnay was voted US number wine by Josh Green of Wines and spirits.He described the wine as 'Exciting, distinctive and transcends simple typicity to its region or variety; a vivid, singular expression of place'.
