Araujo Estate is located in the northeast Napa Valley, just east of Calistoga. The estate was established
around the Eisele Vineyard, first planted over 125 years ago and principally dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon
for the past 50 years. Since the inaugural release bearing the Eisele name in 1971, this unique vineyard
has been widely recognized as one of the greatest terroirs in the Napa Valley.
For the past 23 years, Daphne and Bart Araujo developed the property's potential, bringing it to the status
of California “First Growth”. In 2013, the historic vineyard was acquired by the Pinault family and Groupe
Artemis. With humility, curiosity and commitment to excellence, we
embrace the idea of enabling this extraordinary place to speak its clearest voice.
In vineyard and winery alike, the team will spare no effort to achieve the most exacting quality while
extending and building upon the legacies of the past.
As stewards of this iconic vineyard, we employ organic and biodynamic practices in farming and winemaking,
reinforcing the unique terroir in the wines and ensuring the health of the soil and vines now and for
future generations. Through obsessive attention to detail and driven by quest for perfection, we strive
to produce singular wines of place, of the Eisele Vineyard.
