Wines of Distinction from Unique AppellationsAiken Wines is the personal project of renowned Napa Valley winemaker Joel Aiken, an evolving portfolio of site-specific Cabernet Sauvignons and Pinot Noirs from Napa and Sonoma vineyards selected for their ability to produce wines of character and distinction.
More than anything my winemaking inspiration comes from the vineyards, and over the years I've been lucky enough to work with some of the best. I look for sites that inspire the "aha" moment -- where you
say "Yes, this is the place, these are the grapes. These are the wines I want to make."
