Frank Sinatra, Wilt Chamberlin, Miles Davis, Willie Mays - people that changed the way music and sports were played. These visionaries never followed someone else's style but rather created their own, never wavered and whose contributions to our lives became more profound over time. That's how we feel about Stony Hill.
Over 60 years ago, this plateaued hillside on the westside of Napa Valley was settled by Fred and Eleanor McCrea, planted to Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewürztraminer (in the heart of Cabernet country) and dry farmed to let the fruit and consequentially the wine reflect the partnership of sun and soil.
For over 40 years Mike Chelini, steward of this land that time forgot, has been crafting precise, focused, and extremely age worthy wines that rival any in their clarity and freshness.
A jewel in the shadow of Spring Mountain, we consider it a privilege to represent these wines in California.
