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.  

Salvestrin's Three D is a unique selection of the family's finest Cabernet barrels of the vintage from the famous Dr. Crane vineyard. Made in honor of their three daughters: Hannah, Emma and Tessa, of 100% estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, clones 8 and 169. This prized 3D Cabernet spends almost three years aging in new French oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. The 3D Cabernet Sauvignon showcases premium Dr. Crane fruit. Velvety and sultry, this wine sings with bright notes of raspberry, dried rose petal, olive, and vanilla. The mouthfeel is seamless, elegant and bold. Refined chalky textured tannins give way to hints of cigar box and nutmeg on the finish.

A barrel selection that stays in oak for an extra year, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D Dr. Crane Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, a mix of several clones. Marked by subtle cedar and vanilla shadings and wonderfully deep cassis notes, it's full-bodied, rich and supported by supple tannins and an elegant, lingering finish. Lovely stuff! With 450 cases produced and a sticker price under $200, it's a terrific value in upper-echelon Napa.

Broad and polished, with an inviting core of cassis and blackberry puree flavors, framed by singed alder and infused with black tea, warm earth and sweet tobacco. Dense and long on the finish, with a sense of inner purity that bodes well for cellaring. Best from 2024 through 2038. 455 cases made.
