Fruit of the Sequoias

On a century-old farm among one of the last redwood forests in California’s Napa Valley, Sequoia Grove has been making its well-known wines since 1980. “Sequoia Grove has always focused on producing high-quality wines that overdeliver for their price point,” says head winemaker Michael Trujillo. “Today, with superior Napa Valley grapes and our renovated winery, we are in a position to make even better wines.” Over the last decade, Trujillo has altered the blend to incorporate preferred fruits, and it’s his good relationships with growers that allow him to source the region’s best. He conceived a new standard-bearer for Sequoia Grove in 2007 when he produced a cabernet sauvignon-based red wine from the year’s finest fruits. To commemorate the limited 350-case production of the Cambium vintage, which was released in September, Sequoia Grove is bringing buyers the Cambium Artists’ Series, a collection of commissioned works that debuts with a tribute to the redwoods by nature photographer Art Wolfe. To honor the old-growth forests, the winery is donating a portion of the Cambium proceeds to the Sequoia Parks Foundation to support tree restoration initiatives in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
