About the Winery
Palmaz Vineyards is a prestigious family owned and operated winery in Napa Valley that produces hand-crafted and elegant red and white wines. Argentina natives Julio and Amalia Palmaz established Palmaz Vineyards in Napa Valley in 1997, and 2001 was their inaugural vintage.
The winemaking facility is located within the living rock of Mount George, which is in the southeastern region of Napa Valley. The design of the gravity-flow winery ensures that the wine is transported under the most careful conditions. This old and gentle way to move wine preserves the wine’s complexity and structure. Consulting winemaker Mia Klein (Araujo Estate, Dalle Valle, Spottswoode, and Viader) and winemaker Tina Mitchell craft wines that can be consumed upon release and/or cellared and savored for years to come.
