Etude was founded on the philosophy that winemaking begins in the vineyard long before the harvest and that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in authentic varietal expression. This remains their approach today as they continue to build the Etude legacy.
This winery is further away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Napa Valley, but can still appropriately call themselves a Napa Valley vineyard. Set in what was formerly the Remy Martin estate, they have done a wonderful job reusing the old buildings. . Pinot noirs are their specialty and it shows. Great place to go wine tasting! They welcome large groups as well (as long as you let them know). The grounds are beautiful and they let you bring in your own snacks while you wine taste. The variety of wines to taste is great as well; they have a wide selection of reds and whites.
