Beckstoffer "To Kalon" Vineyard

History

The To Kalon Vineyard has played a pivotal role in the establishment of Napa Valley as a world-renowned grape-growing region for almost two centuries. Original proprietor H.W. Crabb established the vineyard in 1868 consisting of 240 acres of prime, central Napa Valley real estate. During his lifetime, Crabb preformed viticultural research and varietal experimentation, which led to significant advancements in the American industries of wine and grape production. By 1878, Crabb had planted 120 acres of vineyard, built a winery and a distillery on his property. Today, this area of Napa known as Oakville, home to Napa Valley's most sought after brands and vineyard sites. To Kalon "Highest Beauty" is considered by many to be the most important vineyard site in not only Napa Valley, but the entire United States. In 1993, Andy Beckstoffer purchased his section of the To Kalon vineyard from Beaulieu Vineyard. Today, this section of To Kalon is Beckstoffer's most coveted property, with the highest demand from connoisseurs and collectors. We are pleased to introduce Beckstoffer "To Kalon" to the Arrow&Branch family of single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
