Opus One is the product of two families who share a passion for wine and a desire to explore new possibilities. Today, our world expands far beyond the present of each vintage. Just as we look back on experience, we are always looking forward for inspiration.

Share in the essence of winemaking, our Napa Valley Estate, and experiences shared beyond the vineyard. #opusonemoments

 

Sheep Return to the Vineyard

 

Great winemaking begins in the vineyard by honoring traditional methods and the continual pursuit of innovation and improvement.

The Opus One vineyard team welcomes the return of sheep to gently graze the land and invite new growth. This is the beginning of what will become the Opus One 2024 vintage. A focus on absolute quality starts with the land, in the vineyard. A blend of regenerative farming practices and modern techniques harmonizes the natural surroundings and ecosystems.

As we anticipate an early spring in the Napa Valley, our team is actively pruning the vines, removing brush, and preparing for flowering with a little help from these gentle herbivores. This is the second year the Opus One team partnered with sheep to support winter vineyard maintenance and will become a tradition for years to come.

In our ongoing commitment to our patrons and the planet, we have partnered with North Star Carbon Management to preserve the environment and the art of winemaking.

“This partnership with North Star Carbon Management represents a significant advance in our mission to enhance our traditional winemaking with modern sustainability,” shared Michael Silacci, Opus One Winemaker. “The collaboration between Opus One and North Star Carbon underscores our internal strategic pillar together we go further – where synergies among diverse perspectives helps to correct issues that we are facing with climate change and inspires others to do the same.”

August 2022

There is a feeling of excitement in the air at Opus One as the vineyard team begins harvesting what will become the 2022 vintage. This year marks the earliest harvest start date in the history of the winery. Our team started picking Merlot grapes at 3:00am in the morning before the sun rose and the fruit continued to ripen. We wish all of our neighbors a happy and fruitful harvest.
