WELCOME TO DUHIG
DUHIG. Settled in 1853.
Preserving our family’s Napa Valley farming heritage, one vintage at a time.
We are proud to produce a very small amount of earth-to-glass Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon from our home ranch.
“Polished in feel overall, but with a smoldering warm earth accent through the finish that adds range and intrigue.” – J.M., Wine Spectator, 94 pts.
The Duhig home ranch is 13 acres; therefore, it will always produce a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Self-sufficiency has always been a Duhig mandate; from my great-grandfather, James’s first homestead ranch and vineyard, to our small plot of Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon, working the land is a long-standing tradition in the Duhig family.
John Duhig’s great-great-grandfather was an avid farmer known for his Zinfandel grapes, but also earned statewide recognition by the Department of Agriculture and his high-quality “Cots” (Apricots).
The Duhigs raised sheep, cattle, and table grapes and tended a large year-round vegetable garden.
Starting with a plot of land, a tremendous amount of hard work, a pinch of luck, and a desire to honor our legacy of land stewardship for our children to carry on, it is with immense delight that the family has been able to continue the families farming history in Napa Valley, started by James Duhig.
Located in the heart of the Coombsville Appellation. The vineyard topography ranges from 10-180 feet, with slopes from 5% to 22%.
Our soils have the most unique characteristic in the Coombsville area. My personal favorite is the Diatomaceous soil. It tells the story from eons ago when our sunken volcanic Caldera filled into an inland marine and supported microscopic life. The soil is embedded with his ancient life – the decomposed Diatoms that now lend expression as DUHIG wine.
PAY IT FORWARD
Teaching our children to invest in their community is our high priority.
As a young girl, there was a time when my mother was faced with minimal resources, and food scarcity weighed on my little shoulders. The food bank was there during a difficult time for my family. They assisted us when the money ran out before the end of the month. When little is left, a meal can save the day. I am forever grateful that Napa County had then and now a place where all people from a variety of walks of life can come.
