Named for the simple yet elegant barns that dot the American landscape as an enduring reminder of our history, Post & Beam represents craftsmanship, tradition, legacy, and purity. There’s nothing unnecessary or overly complicated about a post and beam barn. It just works beautifully. The same can be said for our wines. They are simple, elegant, pure expressions of each grape in its finest form.
Post & Beam wines are the consummate examples of Cabernet and Chardonnay and nothing else. And for people who truly love wine, that’s usually more than enough.
Every post and beam barn begins with a strong foundation, and so does every Post & Beam wine. Indeed, these wines are built upon foundational winemaking elements, executed flawlessly, so that they result in Cabernets and Chardonnays that taste as they were meant to taste. These are classically crafted wines that emanate from the heart and soul of true winemaking.
At Post & Beam, we make wines of uncommonly pure expression, built by generations of hands-on experience in producing authentic Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay with all of their essence – and none of the pretense.
Inspired by the hand-hewn, enduringly crafted structures that have stood for centuries as a quintessential part of our landscape, Post & Beam is endowed with the knowledge and experience of Far Niente. And that expertise, those four decades of winemaking at the highest possible level, has enabled us to create a wine with the purity of style of Post & Beam.
Rather than look to what’s currently “hot” or “cool,” Post & Beam takes its cues from proven, hand-crafted winemaking. Every step we take in the cellar is intended to highlight, frame and never mask our superb Napa Valley grapes. With our Chardonnay, foregoing malolactic fermentation preserves our fruit’s natural acidity while careful neutral oak barrel aging allows us to tease out layers of silky texture. For our Cabernet, it’s all about gentle pressings and an oak program that supports – but doesn’t overwhelm – the pure flavors and expressions of our Napa Valley Cabernet.
Chardonnays that are balanced and sophisticated, and that do justice to the ethos of genuine Chardonnay.
Cabernets that honor tradition and the fundamentals of superb wine-making, so that your first sip reinforces your belief in the true nature of Cabernet.
