Crosby Roamann and Sean W. McBride wines are made with a minimal intervention philosophy both in the vineyard and the cellar. Grapes are sourced from small, family vineyards following organic, biodynamic or sustainable farming practice. The estate Vineyard is planted to a mix of Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Located in Los Carneros, the coolest region of Napa Valley, they produce wines of substance, elegance, and balance, to be savored for generations to come.
Sean’s philosophy is to keep the winemaking strictly a “made by hand” process. No recipes and no rules, he follows what the grapes are telling him every vintage. After harvest and once in the cellar, sometimes the must will start to ferment quickly, some other times would be just a matter of patience. When the wine is ready, no additives are added. The final result is that no two wines are ever alike, and Sean’s prides most this distinctiveness and unmatched quality. Every vintage.
