Napa's Unsung Whites

4 of 4
Napa’s Other White Wines

Beyond Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, good bottlings tend to be individual efforts. While a winery might focus on a particular grape, success doesn’t generally translate to the valley as a whole.

That doesn’t mean these wines aren’t worth seeking out. All of the following are worth trying—they may even become personal favorites.

Albariño: Abrente, Artesa, Hendry
Chenin Blanc: Ballentine, Chappellet
Gewürztraminer: Stony Hill
Grüner Veltliner: Von Strasser
Malvasia Bianca: Ballentine
Rhône-style blends: Krupp Brothers
Riesling: Smith-Madrone, Stony Hill, Trefethen, V. Sattui
Roussanne: Truchard
Vermentino: Mahoney
Viognier: Darioush, Freemark Abbey
Other blends: Massican, Matthiasson, Robert Sinskey
