The story of the Salvestrin Winery began when Italian immigrants John and Emma Salvestrin fell in love with St. Helena while visiting friends in the early 1920s. In 1932 they purchased a portion of the historic Crane Ranch, including the Victorian home of Dr. Crane. With the repeal of prohibition in 1933, they started selling grapes as the wine industry began to grow again. Ed Salvestrin, who grew up on the family vineyard, continued to grow quality grapes through the 60s, 70s and 80s preserving the family legacy for future generations. He still lives on site and frequently tends to his fruit trees (apples, pomegranates, grapefruit, persimmon) when he’s not helping out in the vineyard. In 1987, Rich Salvestrin completed his degree in viticulture from Fresno State University. He returned to the family vineyard to help farm and also to expand the family's grape growing business to include winemaking. 1994 was the inaugural vintage of Salvestrin Cabernet Sauvignon and in 2001 the estate winery was constructed amongst the family vines. Today, the fourth generation Salvestrin girls are growing up on the family vineyard.

The vineyard at Salvestrin has been farmed sustainably for over eighty years. Holistic guidelines have been utilized since 2006. Fruit trees planted around the property provide a habitat for beneficial insects. Nutrient composts and cover crops increase the biodiversity of the soil and improve tilth. Soil cultivation in the spring aids in achieving vine balance and decreases the need for irrigation. The vineyard at Salvestrin is certified Napa Green with for both Winery and Vineyard and has fish friendly farming practices.  

Typically made of 85-90% Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc to make up the balance of the blend, Salvestrin Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for up to 24 months in French and American oak, with less than 2000 cases annually.

Pure and fresh nose with a hint of stones and oatmeal to the lemon curd and green apples. Nicely saline on the medium-bodied palate with some grapefruit skins and white almonds in the finish. Drink now.

This youthful, muscular, tannic wine is packed with generous red and dark plums, black cherries and oak spices that will evolve and sublimate as the tannins resolve over time. Fine to drink soon with meaty, cheesy dishes.

Salvestrin's 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes largely from the winery's Crystal Springs Vineyard. A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec and 4% Merlot, it was picked between September 12 and September 21. Scents of ripe cherries, restrained cedar, mocha shadings and bright raspberries appear on the nose, while the palate is medium to full-bodied, framed by gently dusty tannins and finishing tart and refreshing.
