Notes from Favia:
2017 Favia CARBONE Red Wine Napa Valley
Our history is just being written. We have been diligently working away in Napa Valley for over 20 years, farming the land and reaping the rewards of our labor. Our craft is in every way a work in progress: we continue to improve and to learn, and each year we add another expression of Napa Valley wine to the rich storylineof what has come before. Long before our arrival, in the early days of Napa Valley viticulture, three brothers settled in what is now known as Coombsville. Antonio, Lorenzo, and NicolaCarbone were the first Italian immigrants to inhabit this quiet,rollingarea east of the city of Napa, cultivating their first crops in 1872. They planted grapes on the hillsides, and on the farm around their homestead, theyplanted fruits and vegetables in abundance. By 1886,they had constructed at least one residence, as well as a stone cellar that still remains. The property became known as theAntonio Carbone Winery and Italian Gardens.We are incredibly lucky to have painstakingly restored the old residences, winery, orchards and gardens, and now call this home for our family and for Favia Wines. Drawing from the same vineyard blocks we’ve worked with for nearly fifteen years, we are honingour craftwith each season, and we could not be closer to the wines than we are now, living above the barrel cellar.With a nod to the past, andwith an eye toward continuing our story, we are incredibly happy to release the third vintage of CARBONE Red Wine,a wine that celebrates the history and promise of this property. Annie calls it our “farm wine,” which really means we’d be happy to share it at dinner,with friends and produce from the garden. No doubt it will bring joy to many a table.

Favia CARBONE Chardonnay Coombsville Napa Valley
Our inaugural vintage of the Favia “Carbone”Chardonnay has quickly become our “house white,” a perennial favoriteat the table when gathering with dear friends and family. Produced from thirty-year-old vines planted just behind our historic winery in Coombsville, thiswine possesses all of the energy, purityand freshness that this noble variety has to offer when itis at its best.With a pale lemon hue glinting with gold on the meniscus, the nose runs the gamut fromwhite-petaled flowers, apples and pears,to citrus peel, piecrust and clotted cream. The palate is replete with notes of lemon curd, tarte Tatin, marzipan and just a hint of fennel. Its creamy texture is balanced with bright acid andlingers on the finish to create full-bodied yet refreshing experience.This wine will continue to unfold and gain complexity with time in the bottle. The only problem is that it’s so inviting today, we might never see that time come!
