Spotted Owl Vineyards - Napa Valley

Platinum Plus Selection - 93 Points Wine Spectator

Spotted Owl Vineyards is a tiny family winery located in the legendary Mt. Veeder district of Napa Valley. This one-of-a-kind appellation produces richly intense, age worthy wines that reflect the rugged, severe conditions of the region and the incredible handcraftsmanship that is demanded at the highest level. Run by the husband and wife team of Mikhail and Jill Gishizky, Spotted Owl Vineyards is a rare Napa producer whose primary focus is on handcrafting premium Syrah, rather than the noble Cabernet Sauvignon that is most often associated with the valley. The Gishizkys acquired their Mt. Veeder mountainside vineyard (reaching 1,200 feet in elevation) in 1999 and immediately replanted it from Chardonnay to Syrah. Aside from having a passion for this varietal, they knew how well Syrah grew on Atlas Peak, a region with similar conditions and known as Napa’s most highly elevated and rugged landscape. Mikhail and Jill enjoy keeping their production small (under 700 cases) and work in collaboration with winemaker Rolando Herrera (of Mi Sueño Winery) to craft their limited release wines. Spotted Owl Vineyards, which is named for a spotted owl that lives on the property, has quickly become one of the hidden gems of Napa Valley, and with allocation so small, the wines are nearly impossible to find.
