Buehler Vineyards is a small, family-owned winery located in the mountains east of St. Helena in Napa Valley. Situated north of Pritchard Hill and Conn Valley, near the base of Howell Mountain, our hillside vineyards are planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller blocks of old-vine Zinfandel
Our family has been farming this beautiful estate for thirty-six years. We combine that experience and the unique terroir of our hillside vineyards with low yields, meticulous vineyard management, and minimalist winemaking techniques to create wines of uncommon complexity and depth, and to present these wines to wine lovers at reasonable prices.
Buehler's Cabernet vineyards are over 30 years old. We call the two oldest cabernet blocks The Terrace and Papa's Knoll. The vines typically give us our most compelling fruit: saturated color is the norm along with great depth of flavor.
Buehler's Zinfandel Vineyards are over 30 years old. These vineyards consist of two blocks, The Barn and The House. Among the old head trained zinfandel vines are some petite sirah vines accounting for 5% of the total vines in this block. A traditional field companion to zinfandel in pre-prohibition California vineyards, petite sirah contributes pepper, color and structure to the wine.
The Russian River Valley is one of the world's premier appellations for Chardonnay. Its cool, coastal climate slowly coaxes this early-ripening variety to maturity and allows us to craft rich yet structured wines. Our Chardonnay source is a vineyard on East Side Road just across the river from the noted vineyards Rochioli and Allen.
