Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

What The Number 16 Signifies: Jean-Charles grew up in Burgundy, France and at the age of 16 he visited the Bordeaux region for the first time. He forever remembers his first taste of the crisp white wine blends and it inspired the creation of N° 16, an extraordinary Napa Valley blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
