Established in 1982, Etude’s founding philosophy is that winemaking begins in the vineyard long before the harvest and that inspired grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in an authentic expression of the varietal. This philosophy is brought to life on the Etude Estate Vineyards, tucked away in the far northwest corner of the esteemed Carneros Appellation, close to the elegant state-of-the art winery and tasting room. Etude’s celebrated Pinot Noirs and its small production of sparkling Blanc de Noirs, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Rosé of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are vinified from grapes grown on the Estate while the opulent Cabernet Sauvignon is from vineyards in the prime Cabernet zone, representing the major benchland sub-appellations of Napa Valley – Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena, Coombsville, and Calistoga. The consistent high quality of the grapes Etude grows and sources, combined with the skill and experience of the winemaking team, explains why Etude is recognized as one of America’s premier artisan wineries.

Our Terroir Tasting is a deep dive into the clarity and expression of a single grape varietal from its precise place of origin, or its "terroir", illustrated by our winery-exclusive single-vineyard Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Sauvignons. The Pinot Noirs feature selections from our portfolio of 10 vineyard designate Pinot Noirs from four regions across the cool Pacific Coast: Carneros, Sonoma Coast, Santa Rita Hills in Santa Barbara, and Willamette Valley in Oregon. Our highly-acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon features fruit from the most renowned vineyards in Napa Valley including two of our longest-running Cabernets from Morisoli Vineyard in Rutherford and Vine Hill Ranch in Oakville.
