Gamble Family Vineyards

With 100 years of agriculture in Napa, it comes as no surprise that the heart and soul of Gamble Family Vineyards is deeply rooted in the soil. Founded by third-generation farmer Tom Gamble in 2005, Gamble Family Vineyards owns prime estate vineyards. Gamble’s mission is to carry on the heritage of farming that his ancestors sowed when they came to Napa as farmers and cattle ranchers in 1916. They left with him a legacy of deep and abiding affinity for the land from which came not only their livelihood, but also a life full of purpose.

 

 

“All our wines are produced in small quantities, with the careful attention to farming my forebears would expect.”

NAPA VALLEY CABERNET

The Napa Valley Cabernet is made with grapes selected from some of the Gamble Family’s favorite Napa Valley vineyards. The Napa Valley stretches far across many different soils and microclimates, and the combination of these diverse vineyard selections gives this wine its rich character and complexity.

SAUVIGNON BLANC

The twenty-acre Gamble Vineyard sits at the northerly edge of the Yountville Appellation in the geographic center of Napa Valley. Within the vineyard, they grow several different clones each displaying its own expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Two of the clones originate from the Loire region: Sauvignon Musque Clone and Clone 530. These are complemented by two clones that originate from Bordeaux: Preston Clone and Clone 316. Their fruit is hand-harvested cold, in the early hours of the day, and taken directly to the press to preserve fruit and flavor integrity.

ROSÉ WINE

A beautiful rosé that has inviting aromas of wild strawberry, Ranier cherry and tangerine zest as well as secondary notes of white peaches, Fuji apple and orange blossom. The palate showcases flavors of juicy, pink grapefruit and watermelon rind with subtle hints of white flowers and fresh rain. Refreshingly dry with bright acidity and a long, crisp finish.

Gamble Family Vineyards History:
Following his family’s method of meticulously caring for the land, Tom’s own farming history earned him a reputation for quality and resulted in increased demand for his grapes from other vintners. After a couple of decades, Tom was ready – albeit apprehensive – to begin bottling his own wines. “I didn’t know much about winemaking or wine sales, but I knew I had good land to work with,” says Tom Gamble.

As a farmer in heart and practice, Gamble follows a holistic approach to farming and winemaking. When it comes to farming his land, Gamble chooses to focus on the sustainable route, one that he believes provides a return that reinvests in the land. His goal is to farm in a manner that isn’t detrimental to the community or the planet. His winery and vineyards are certified Napa Green and Fish Friendly.

Gamble Family Vineyards farms approximately 175 acres of land spread throughout some of Napa’s most well-known AVAs, including Oakville, Yountville, Rutherford and Mt. Veeder. Gamble Family Vineyards’ wines are produced in small quantities, with careful attention to farming.
