Re-cap: Virtual Wine Tasting with Quintessa

Re-cap: Virtual Wine Tasting with Quintessa

 

"Quintessa is a lyrically beautifully property. It has been a dream of mine to be working in such a beautiful estate with so much to give." - Rebekah Wineburg, Head Winemaker of Quintessa. 

Re-cap: Virtual Wine Tasting with QuintessaLocated in the perfect center of Napa Valley, Quintessa is more than a winery. It is a combination of the geological environment, climate, terroir and the people. 

In our Virtual Tasting with Quintessa, we were honoured to be joined by Head Winemaker Rebekah Wineburg and Diego Garay, Export Director of Quintessa.

Despite not being able to see the winery during our event (it was 5am before sunrise), we were painted a beautiful picture of what Quintessa truly is. Through the event, it was easy to understand the energy and potential of Quintessa. 


Quintessa sits on the valley floor, sandwiched between hillsides. Being dead center, the winery is blessed with both cool and hot climate and the grapes ripen just before the point of becoming too alcoholic or jammy.

The 280 acres has 26 different blocks of vines and as many as 85 picking sections. Being blessed with such diversity, Quintessa does not rely on pesticides or chemicals. Instead, Rebekah prefers to focus on the land's geology to understand the soil. Healthy soil brings healthy and balanced vines, fend off pests while improving the quality of the grapes.

As Rebekah explained what happens beneath the vineyard, we learnt that understanding the land is Quintessa's never-ending quest. One part of the terroir is filled with volcanic soil with 5 million years of history to add dusty texture to the wines while the other parts near the Napa River contain clay loam to add to the plushness and density. 

The name Quintessa represents the fifth element, soul. This concept is well incorporated from the hospitality center to host guests and family to a special spiritual place on the property. Working with geologists, a Master blender and a community of growers, Quintessa aims to resemble different parts of Napa into one harmonious blend and achieve a purer estate every year.
