Vineyard Information

Old world meets new world at Artesa. One the oldest winemaking families in Spain decided to set out for the new world, opening this stunning property on a humble hillside in Napa Valley in 1991. Raventós Codorníu chose wisely when he found this beautiful spot in the hills of Napa. 

A visit to Artesa’s stunning estate on the foothills of Mt. Veeder is an experience not to be missed. 

Tasting Information
