“berry by berry”
“Good” isn’t a word Jayson Woodbridge, owner, vintner and visionary of Hundred Acre would use when it comes to his wines. His motto is clear and concise, “stand amongst the very best or not at all”; he’s spared no expense assembling one of Napa Valley’s most exciting wines. Accompanied by a team of Napa Valley’s brightest stars, Philippe Melka consultant (to the winemaking team) and Jim Barbour vineyard manager, Woodbridge has managed to create what Robert Parker has called, “a terrific example of great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon”
His winemaking style could be deemed as very “hands on”. To Jayson, each step from hand picking the vineyards in numerous passes, hand sorting the fruit berry by berry, the forest and age of wood carefully selected and measured prior to barrels being made. Everything hand crafted, hand pruned, scrutinized and aligned for his desired response, near critical perfection and some of the finest wine known to man. Each wine represents single estate vineyards with 100% single varietal from the Napa and Barossa Valleys: Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Cabernet Sauvignon, Hundred Acre Ark Cabernet Sauvignon and Hundred Acre Ancient Way Shiraz.
“From meticulous harvesting berry by berry rather than grape bunch by grape bunch, to an obsessive/compulsive barrel regime as well as winemaking, Hundred Acre is the Napa outpost of visionary and a genius – Jayson Woodbridge.” RP 12/10
