The Harlan family’s unflinching foray into wilderness winemaking, Promontory lies near the heart of Napa Valley yet remains hidden within an unmarked territory.
In the early 1980s while hiking along Oakville’s southwestern ridge, H. William Harlan discovered an isolated territory. The remote expanse — ancient and untamed — moved him deeply but remained elusive until the Harlan family finally acquired it in 2008. As the family’s second generation explored and began to cultivate the land, they began to make discoveries of their own. At the core of this wild terrain they found a powerful geologic convergence, which had shaped its steep, rugged topography, and created the conditions for an altogether exotic winegrowing environment. Over time they found that the dramatic landscape — just beyond the edge of the known — would slowly change them, and ultimately inspire a new endeavor: Promontory.
The Promontory winery is set apart, just north of the territory, among the western hills of Oakville overlooking the Napa Valley. Visitors are welcome, by appointment, for an intimate introduction to our wine, philosophy, and discovery of the territory. To arrange an appointment, we invite you to call or email our concierge.
