Newton Red Label Wines
Dedicated to working in harmony with nature to produce remarkable artisan wines, Newton Vineyard transforms fruit of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character.
The grapes used to make our Red Label wines are sourced from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley, from Los Carneros to Chiles Valley. Every year, we select grapes with a specific characteristic that will allow us to achieve the desired flavor profile of the final blend and create continuity vintage to vintage.

The 2011 vintage was relatively cool, providing ideal conditions for grapes to ripen slowly and develop complexity. The yields were lower with small berries that had intense colors and bright fruit flavors.
We begin our winemaking work in our vineyards, cultivating the vines using sustainable farming techniques and following nature’s lead as the growing season unfolds. As harvest begins, our winemaker walks the vineyard rows to ensure grapes aren’t picked until they have reached optimum ripeness. In the cellar, quality and purity are never compromised at the hands of convenience.

tasting notes

Fresh red raspberry and ripe blackberry aromas are punctuated by layers of rich, earthy, herbal tones. On the palate, the same red, black and blueberry flavors are prominent-all wrapped in a pleasing structure and texture.

Newton Red Label Chardonnay

The 2012 vintage was warm and even. In many ways it was ideal without any threat of frost in the beginning or rain at the end. As a result, the grapes matured at an even pace, developing intense fruit flavors while maintaining a pleasant acidity.
We begin our winemaking work in our vineyards, cultivating the vines using sustainable farming techniques and following nature’s lead as the growing season unfolds. As harvest begins, our winemaker walks the vineyard rows to track the ripening of the fruit to ensure it’s picked when it reaches optimal ripeness. In the cellar, quality and purity are never compromised at the hands of convenience.
The warm vintage resulted in a riper style-more expressive with a fuller, creamier mouthfeel. Ripe melon, tropical fruit, mango and baked apples all mingle amid the round, luscious texture.
