OPUS ONE MOMENTS
Capturing Time and Place
Opus One is the product of two families who shared 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.
In turbulent and challenging times such as this, to stay silent is to be complacent and complicit. Opus One stands unequivocally on the side of equality and justice for everyone. We stand steadfastly opposed to all forms of racism and injustice. Black lives matter. Opus One was born of cultural diversity and we cherish and nurture our diversity. We are committed to working with our neighbors in our community and with people all across our country and around the world to help bring about real and lasting change. We are all in this together.

The 2020 Growing Season
The 2020 growing season in Napa Valley continues to be dry, with low humidity levels and warm days. Fortunately, the moderate temperatures have allowed our vineyard crews to work every day without any delays. Cultivation of the vineyard was in full swing the first week of February and our teams trained diligently with a new frost protection alarm system. As we approached March, we were met with a warm beginning, followed by a cooler trend, as new life arose from our dormant vines. This stage in the life of the vine is referred to as bud break. As the vines emerge from their winter sleep, the Valley will glow in the light of the new leaves.

Championing the importance of family and the community
In 2018, Opus One was proud to participate in Auction Napa Valley by offering an auction lot titled "Party like it is 1789 with Opus One". The lot included access to a masked costume ball at the Palace of Versailles, dinner in the palace with selected vintages of Opus One and an extraordinary excursion to the City of Light. 4 Imperials (6L) of Opus One 1979, 1989, 1999 and 2009 were also included. The lot raised $1.4 million for local health and children's charities.
