ABOUT CLOS DU VAL WINERY
40 years ago, Clos Du Val Winery was founded in the NAPA Valley, California on the honored principles of individuality and independence which guide us to this day. Clos Du Val was founded with a commitment to crafting world-class wines of elegance and balance, wines that age with grace and style and that pair perfectly with food. Our style has stood the test of time because we make wines we believe in.
Being Vindependent means we remain proudly defiant of passing trends and influences, steadfast in our commitment to crafting refined wines of elegance and balance, reflective not of winemaker 'magic', but rather as a fluent expression of the varietal and terroir from which our wines are born.
It has been said that we at Clos Du Val 'march to the beat of our own drum', as if that is a bad thing. We respectfully disagree. We make wines for the wine lover, made to pair with food, to age with strength and grace, in quiet deference to the earth and to mother Nature. We do not make wine in hope of achieving a great score, we make wine in hope of achieving greatness.
Our Vindependence is further grounded in the instinct that comes from farming the same vineyards for nearly four decades, for remaining true to our roots and to our vision. We invite you to join us, enjoy our wines everyday and live as we do, fiercely Vindependent and proud of it.
