The Domain: Forty-five years ago, the Maldonado Family arrived in Napa and with four decades of grape growing experience, they produce small lots of exceptional wines. Led by their Los Olivos Chardonnay, they have expanded with several other wines, from their estate in Jameson Canyon, as well as from a few vineyards which they manage in the cooler micro climates of Sonoma County and Napa Valley. Hugo Maldonado and consulting winemaker, Jean Hoefilger, originally met at Newton, where the Maldonados still manage all the vineyards.
