The name for Pedras Wine Company comes from the word for "stone" in Portuguese. The origins of the brand stem from the Ristow Estate’s Quinta de Pedras Vineyard, located on the eastern side of the Silverado Trail, just south of the Stags Leap District in the Napa Valley. This rocky hillside vineyard produces limited quantities of intensely flavored and complex Cabernet Sauvignon.
Proprietors Cecilia & Wil Harris and Winemaker Jamey Whetstone share the vision of making a limited production of bright, rich Cabernet Sauvignon from this vineyard. Grapes are selected from the most expressive four-acre site in the vineyard, keeping case production at approximately 300-500 cases per vintage.
