Yountville Wine Imports & Buccella:
Yountville Wine Imports represents small family estates from Austria, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. Many of YWI’s producers are thoughtful curators dedicated to preserving old-vine vineyards and local varietals that may have otherwise been lost to history, while others are newcomers bringing fresh ideas to long-established wine growing regions. These are wines of great purity that display a distinct sense of place and reflect the unique vision of each producer. Our vintners understand that tradition is something that constantly renews itself and that producing honest, authentic wines that are true to their origins does not always require one to be bound by the orthodoxy of the past. Tradition is honoring those who have come before you, while living and working in the present. All of our producers adhere to sustainable practices and several are either organic or biodynamic. Most importantly, we believe that every bottle should be a pleasure to drink. Founded in 2002 by Bill and Alicia Deem, Buccella is a small, family winery inspired by the garagistes of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. Since then, Buccella has blossomed into a highly rated and well regarded producer of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Their Cabernets are crafted from meticulously, farmed fruit from select, vineyard sites spanning the Napa Valley including Pritchard Hill, Coombsville, St. Helena and Yountville. Their Merlot is sourced from legendary Hyde Vineyard in Carneros.
