William Cole Vineyards - Hand Crafted Wines

Hand Crafted Wines

William believes the timing of everything, in the creation of our wine, is based on taste. There is no predetermined schedule for the wine. Each of our wine lots mature separately, which results in a complex, elegant wine that represents the best of Napa Valley. We are proud to be able to complete the whole process, from the growing of the grapes, making of the wine, hand-bottling, and packaging in-house.
