The cherished Napa Valley landscape is planted to 47,000 acres of wine grapes and segmented into 16 distinct AVAs, each lauded for their unique and diverse terroir.  Ranging from cool, coastal influences to warmer temperatures, mountainous terrain to valley floor, clay soil to volcanic rock, the Napa Valley American Viticulture Areas are remarkable.

1881 Napa delights in producing appellation-designate bottlings derived from some of the most prestigious vineyards throughout these individual AVAs, providing guests with the opportunity to explore the full range of Cabernet expressions through the region.
