Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard
Napa Valley

Pioneering vintner H.W. Crabb first planted his vineyard in the mid-19th century. Well-regarded for its superlative fruit, he named it To Kalon, Greek for 'highest good'. In the 20th century, To Kalon found new glory as the source of the legendary Georges de Latour wines made by Andre Tchelistcheff. The sections we farm are specified by not just the block or row, but by the vine.
