Harlan Estate - The Napa Wine Project

www.napawineproject.com, $reference.date [cached]

We chose Harlan Estate for this milestone visit because of their well-regarded reputation for quality, the instant name recognition and because of Mr. Harlan's unique personal contributions, influence and history in the Napa Valley over the past 30+ years.

...
Mr. Harlan went to school at UC Berkeley and his first introduction to the Napa Valley was in 1959 (at this time, Napa served the purpose of weekend getaways for taking his dates from Berkeley). Lured by the natural beauty and eventually by the potential for growing wine grapes his visits became more frequent. His passion for wine started in his teens. Mr. Harlan attended the opening day of Robert Mondavi's winery in 1966 and by this time was already nurturing a dream of owning his own wine estate.
...
Before Harlan there was Merryvale. This was the first winery to be built after Prohibition in the Napa Valley and Harlan and partners brought this winery back to life in 1983 (he sold his interest in the mid 90's). Before Merryvale there was Meadowood, still one of the most exclusive lodging options in the Napa Valley (also home to the annual Napa Wine Auction). Meadowood was established by Bill Harlan in 1979.
Not to be outdone is Napa's most exclusive "wine club", the Napa Valley Reserve which was also started by Bill Harlan. Located next to Meadowood this is an exclusive invitation only wine club (wine, use of facilities, special events, trips, educational events) with an initiation fee at the time of this review that runs $155,000.
Mr. Harlan purchased his original property in 1984 - at that time, despite being less than 30 years ago, the property was completely forested and covered with native vegetation. The original purchase was 6 acres and this has grown to 240 acres today with 40 acres under vine. Mr. Harlan had the foresight and vision to turn this hillside acreage into a world class "first growth" vineyard of Napa Valley. While his own property was never developed to vineyards - nearby parts of Oakville were certainly had proven terroir including Martha's Vineyard.
...
Harlan was not in a hurry to push wine to market after purchasing the property. Mr. Harlan's focus on Harlan Estate has always been a long term one - thinking out decades in the future.
...
They stay lined up until bottling; Harlan does not rack the barrels.
...
Harlan's produces a second wine called "The Maiden".
Surprisingly Harlan has distribution in about 35 states and 30 countries - yet with a production of only 1800 cases and their price point, distribution is very selective. Locally you can find the wine at times, at several wine shops including 750 Wines and St. Helena Wine Merchants and St. Helena Wine Center (all in the town of St. Helena). Harlan sells direct, but you must be on their mailing list. To join the waiting list, visit: www.harlanestate.com
