Opus One 'Overature' Red Blend, Napa Valley

Overture of Elegance: A Symphony in a Bottle

A Legendary Alliance and a Visionary Creation

Opus One 'Overture' emerges from the heart of Napa Valley, a testament to the legendary partnership between Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi. This partnership bridged Bordeaux and Napa Valley and marked the inception of one of the world's most prestigious wines. Born from a visionary collaboration in the 1970s, Opus One has distinguished itself as a pioneer, becoming the first premium California wine to grace the European markets and joining the elite circle of "Cult Cabernets."

Craftsmanship and Terroir: The Opus One Legacy

The essence of Opus One 'Overture' is its meticulous production process, where each grape is hand-harvested from the esteemed estate vineyards in Oakville, including parcels of the iconic To Kalon vineyard. Opus One showcases an unparalleled commitment to quality and sustainability by utilizing gravity flow for a gentle touch in winemaking and aging the blend in new French oak. This dedication extends to Overture, a harmonious blend that marries multiple vintages, offering a softer, rounder expression immediately approachable upon release.
