Welcome to Rigg Estate Vineyards

dedicated to growing the most intensely flavorful, hand - tended cabernet sauvignon grapes for producing a distinctive, full-bodied, flavorful single varietal wine.

Rigg Estate Vineyards is an independent, estate-based winery located in Palomares Canyon in the Livermore, California appellation.

 

Understanding the importance of terroir, Rigg Estate Vineyards has developed estate-owned vineyards in the premiere growing regions of the old and venerable Livermore Valley Appelation.

 

Annual production is 400 cases with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine produced from our own estate vineyards.

 

The perfect soil and the perfect climate result in a long hang time with the grape harvest at full ripeness.

Hand harvesting of the grapes occurs in early November.

 

The full ripeness of the grapes predictably registers 24 to 26 brix.
