The Winery

Forman Vineyard

Based in St. Helena, California, Forman Vineyards is an estate known for its Cabernet Sauvignon made by Ric Forman. Having previously worked at Sterling and Newton Vineyards, Forman began his own label in 1983 and now owns three vineyards. Although his winemaking philosophy follows more of a traditional approach, Ric is an advocate for the terroir in which he gets his grapes from.

The eight-acre Clos Vineyard below the winery has the deepest soil with granite and sand deposits, while the 20-acre block above the winery has more dense and rocky volcanic soil. Even further up the mountain in the Rutherford AVA, the third block has more pink gravel with ancient ash, and all of the soil types contribute to the complexity of the principal wine in the portfolio, Forman Vineyard Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The wonderfully situated vineyards combined with his deliberate intervention make his wines a personal testament to producing quality wines from the Napa Valley.
