Promontory is one of the most unique wine-growing endeavors in California’s Napa Valley, a self-contained ecosystem hidden within a lost valley. We have spent time walking the steep, rugged hillside vineyards of Promontory, and it’s hard to think of a comparable place on earth. The territory was first discovered by Bill Harlan in the 1980s, who perceived the potential for something special, and was finally captured by the family in 2008. Since then, the second generation lead by Will Harlan and director of wine growing, Cory Empting, have been working to understand the wild character of this land, and faithfully translate it through the wine.
Promontory confirmed its status from rising superstar to new cult of Napa Valley just a few years ago. The debut vintage was 2009 and each vintage seems to get better as they hone in on the true expression of this remarkable place. Having reached perfect scores of 100 points for its 2012 and 2016 vintages, Promontory is now part of an iconic Harlan family trilogy alongside Bond and Harlan. We invite you to discover what makes Promontory so special and why it is here to last through a unique vertical tasting of six vintages from 2012 to 2016.
