El Molino Winery

El Molino Winery

El Molino is one of the oldest wineries in the Napa Valley (founded in 1871); however, up until the 1970s, the majority of their wine was sold in bulk rather than under their domaine label. South African winemaker Jon Berlin runs the estate with his American wife Lily Berlin. Unlike their neighbours, they focus on Pinot Noir rather than Cabernet Sauvignon from the Rutherford AVA. Production is extremely limited, with only 800 cases produced annually of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and although production largely remains in the USA, Berry Bros. & Rudd has managed to ship some across the Atlantic. These wines age beautifully and are one of the many small growers that are producing incredibly exciting wines from this fashionable region.
