In 2004, F. Allan Chapman purchased the 638 acre Priest Ranch property and the following year, combined it with the 990 acre Lynch Vineyards to create Priest Ranch Wines. Craig Becker is the director of winemaking and viticulture. The vineyards are located in eastern Napa County on hills ranging in elevation from about 850-2,400 feet. Two hundred acres of sustainably farmed vineyards are divided into 87 individual blocks and are planted on various soils alluvial fans, silty clay and fractured shale, and Akin. Of the 87 blocks, Priest Ranch sources its Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Sauvignon Blanc from its top 10 blocks and sells the remainder to some of Napa Valley’s finest David Ramey and Heidi Barrett and respected wineries like Caymus, Duckhorn, Orin Swift, Pahlmeyer and Viader.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2013)
One rarely sees Grenache Blanc in this area, but this delicious 2012 Somerstone Vineyard (1,000 cases produced) comes from a 6-acre parcel. Fresh citrus, white currant and floral notes are followed by a vivid, unoaked, medium-bodied white wine with personality. Consume it over the next several years.
