OPUS ONE MOMENTS

Capturing Time and Place

Opus One is the product of two families who shared a passion for wine and a desire to explore new possibilities. Today, our world expands far beyond the present of each vintage. Just as we look back on experience, we are always looking forward for inspiration.

Budbreak 2021

The first signs of budbreak were observed in a parcel of Cabernet Franc vines on March 15th, marking the beginning of the 2021 growing season. The cycle of life continues and its persistent beauty uplifts our spirits during these unprecedented times.

Giovanni is teaching Hillary to prune the vineyards

One hundred and ten non-production employees have cared for grapevines and made wine at Opus One since 2004. Two winery winemaking teams are led by vineyard and cellar workers each year. Giovanni is showing Hillary the nuances of pruning. Each winery winemaking team has two rows of vines in our To Kalon South Estate Vineyard. The two teams make four barrels of wine each, and it is usually selected for the Opus One blend.

Pruning

“Pruning is a time to reflect on the past, live in the present, and imagine what the future will bring. It is at intersection of attention to detail and purity of focus. Precise cuts are made to leave enough cane above the bud to protect the bud from drying out, but not so much that pests find a place to harbor.” -Michael Silacci, Opus One Winemaker

“Wine should express itself. It should tell you where it came from.”
