John Anthony Vineyards



Scenic view of Twisted Oak Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, showcasing picturesque hillside terrain adorned with lush green vines, epitomizing the natural beauty and charm of this renowned wine-growing region.

Unique amongst John Anthony's four Oak Knoll District vineyards, Twisted Oak has a higher elevation and different vine orientations. Perched upon a steep hillside, these vines experience varying degrees of sunlight throughout the day due to the natural contours of the land. The interplay of soil drainage, sun exposure, and shade fosters an unparalleled intensity of flavor in the fruit harvested from this unique plot. Spanning six acres, Twisted Oak holds a special status, with select blocks consistently yielding high-quality fruit. These exceptional Cabernet grapes frequently contend for inclusion in the prestigious John Anthony Reserve program and coveted single, best-of-all-barrels selection, The One.

Oak Knoll District is located to the north of Napa city, placing it right in the path of the daily fog that creeps up from the Bay, making it one of the cooler AVAs. Twisted Oak Vineyard is to the upper west of this AVA, in the foothills of Mount Veeder; here the soil is more gravelly and the terrain is steep. Red wines especially from this AVA tend to be among the more elegant and understated in Napa Valley.
