Maldonado Vineyard is located in Jameson Canyon, just south of Napa. It is nestled in a small and narrow valley that links Napa Valley to Solano County. Being very near the Carneros AVA, the vineyard is very cool with a large San Pablo Bay influence, which makes it a great site for Chardonnay. The Maldonado Family recognized that and has done a fabulous job stewarding their land to greatness.
