Dalla Valle Vineyards is renowned as one of Napa Valley’s foremost family-run wineries. Established in 1986 by Naoko and her late husband Gustav Dalla Valle on the renowned eastern hillsides of Oakville, Dalla Valle Vineyards has consistently garnered acclaim as one of the world’s premier wine estates, producing wines of exceptional character and complexity year after year.

Today, the winery is led by the mother-and-daughter team of Naoko and Maya Dalla Valle, who collaborate with a distinguished team that includes Consulting Winemaker Andy Erickson, Vineyard Manager Edgar Alfaro, and Consulting Enologist Michel Rolland. United by a shared mission to ensure Dalla Valle's legacy for generations, this dedicated team meticulously oversees every aspect of viticulture and winemaking, applying a level of care and precision comparable to the great First Growths.

The 2021 vintage demonstrated remarkable resilience despite drought conditions, producing wines of notable power and intensity. Limited winter rainfall and early spring warmth led to an early bud break, followed by cooler temperatures in April and May accompanied by occasional rains. A dry, moderate summer resulted in early ripening at our site, culminating in a concentrated and intense harvest during the first two weeks of September. The 2021 wines are distinguished by their concentration, weight, and brightness.

 

"The 2021 Collina is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cab Franc and 10% Petite Verdot. This wine presents a deep, alluring garnet hue, displaying a radiant core suggesting both youth and promise. The bouquet opens with poised elegance as ripe black cherries and cassis take the lead, accompanied by subtle fragrances of dark plums and blackberries, creating a harmonious symphony of dark fruit. Delicate notes of nuanced cedar and graphite add an alluring complexity to the aromatic profile. A refined entry of luscious black fruits—blackberry, currants, and a hint of dark cherry—unfolds seamlessly, supported by finely integrated, supple tannins. The wine exhibits a brilliant balance, showcasing a vibrant acidity that harmonizes the rich fruit profile and adds a layer of freshness, a continued testament to our terroir and the strength of the 2021 vintage."
