Dug into the Howell Mountain soil on July 1, 2016, the Paravel Estate Vineyard is here, alive and growing strong.
Soil has been turned up, rocks are being carted away, and another of Jon’s far-off dreams is coming closer to reality: he’s slowly evolving into a farmer.
There will soon be a vineyard, and Paravel wines will literally have their own roots. Thanks to Hoppy. And thanks to you, we have people who will appreciate the wine we grow.
... an incredible year for hillside fruit in Napa Valley. I like to keep my vineyards in the hills, so it worked out well. Early rain tempted early picking, but I held out until the end of October, well into an Indian Summer for the storybooks.
