Philip Togni Vineyard Description
Philip Togni Vineyard, nestled in the picturesque Spring Mountain District AVA in St. Helena, Napa Valley, California, is a testament to the dedication and passion of the Togni family in crafting exceptional wines. Established in 1981 by Philip Togni and his wife Birgitta, this small, family-owned winery has since become one of the oldest producers in the Spring Mountain District AVA.
Sitting atop a stunning ten-acre plot at an elevation of 2000 feet above sea level, the vineyard benefits from the unique microclimate of the region, producing wines that reflect the true essence of Spring Mountain. The estate is entirely self-contained, with the Togni family overseeing every aspect of the winemaking process, from vineyard management to bottling and shipping.
The heart of their wine collection lies in their varietal Cabernet Sauvignon, known for its strong Spring Mountain characteristics and its ability to age gracefully, revealing its elegance over time. For those seeking a more approachable experience, the second label, Tanbark Hill, offers a delightful Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from younger vines on the property.
Aside from their acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyard also produces Ca’ Togni, a sweet wine inspired by the style of Constantia. This diverse collection showcases the expertise and artistry of the Togni family in crafting wines that exemplify the essence of the region.
Currently, the vineyard is jointly owned by Birgitta and Philip Togni, who brings years of experience and knowledge from his time at the University of Bordeaux, and their daughter Lisa, who has contributed her expertise gained from the wine trade and international winemaking experiences.
With a commitment to organic farming practices, a picturesque location, and a rich legacy in the world of winemaking, Philip Togni Vineyard continues to be a cherished gem in Napa Valley, offering wine enthusiasts an unforgettable journey through the distinct terroir of the Spring Mountain District.
