3. Less automation and more hand crafting practices to come up with custom blends up.

4. Special emphasis on sustainability practices and environment friendly measures.

2. Small firm with only around 240 acres of vineyards.

3. Serves just a few traditional fine red and white wines.


1. Bought by Constellation brands but growing by managing operations of other wineries under the parent company like the Ravenswood and others.
2. Achieving economies of scope by serving bigger markets in USA itself.


1. Just a small brand under Constellation which has a chain of others brands performing exceptionally well. So needs to contribute to justify its existence.
2. No point of differentiation in the highly competitive Napa Valley can lead to loss of identity.
