A hallmark in the Napa Valley since it was founded in 1971, Raymond Vineyards is enjoying a modern-day renaissance. It began in late 2009, when Burgundy?s innovative Boisset Family Estates purchased the winery to help build upon the Raymond family's rich 130-year heritage in the Napa Valley.
Cabernet Shiraz India In February 2010, Stephanie Putnam joined Raymond as director of winemaking. As a former winemaker at Far Niente Winery and Hess Collection, Stephanie's wines have won high acclaim. "I have always considered Raymond Vineyards to be a benchmark for high-quality Napa Valley wines with elegance and finesse," Stephanie says. "Our strength lies in our terroir and our people." Stephanie works closely with Vineyard Manager Eric Pooler, who supervises the winery's three estate vineyards. They craft wine for seven labels, including two offering exceptional value for under $20: R Collection Field Blend, a unique red wine blend, and Family Classic, a retail exclusive Cabernet Sauvignon.

Eric is busily overseeing a transition to organic and Biodynamic farming methods , which includes the use of cover crops, the application of Biodynamic-specific preparations and composts, and the maintenance of biodiversity within the estate vineyard property.

Sauvignon Blanc With more sustainable wine-growing than anywhere else in the world, California is the perfect place to celebrate Earth Day (April 22nd) this year and throughout the month. The state’s wineries are offering many special events showcasing eco-responsible wine-growing and winemaking.
Chenin Blanc “Earth Day is a great time to think about how California’s wine industry has raised the bar for producing wines that are responsible to the earth and communities,” says Allison Jordan of the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance. To date, 1,566 vintners and growers—about 68% of the California’s vineyard acreage and 63% of wine production—have assessed the sustainability of their operations.
