LaPonza Cabernet was developed in collaboration with celebrated winemaker and friend, Benoit Touquette, this project is a true labor of love for the gregarious vintner who credits her family and friends for giving her the inspiration and courage to strike out on her own.
LaPonza Wines consists of a series of small-lot, 100% Cabernet Sauvignons from Napa Valley’s most renowned AVA’s. Hand-crafted from fruit sourced from small, private vineyards that demonstrate the character and the true sense of the geography and climate of Napa Valley, LaPonza Wines strive to consistently express their highly diverse and nuanced origins.
Linda and Benoit, who have worked together for the past eight years, are eager to experiment with the broad palette of cabernet fruit in the valley to achieve blends that are original and unprecedented. As a result, the portfolio of offerings will be decidedly diverse and highly vintage-dependent, ranging from single-vineyard to blends from varied vineyards but always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
“The LaPonza Wines are a testament to the best things in life: family, friendship, camaraderie, creativity, passion and, of course, wine,” commented proprietor, Linda LaPonza. “I am thrilled to continue to work with Benoit on a project truly meaningful to the both of us.”
