Wayfare Through Wine
Hyde Park | Written by Kristen Shirley | Dec 2020
Palmaz Vineyards has one of the most unique wineries in the world. The Cave is built into Mount George in Napa Valley, and its operations run through a warren of tunnels and domes across 18 stories. Its winemakers eschew mechanical pumps and instead harness the power of gravity to produce the wine underground. While Palmaz Vineyards is renowned for its red wines, including powerful Cabernet Sauvignons, its Chardonnay is not to be missed. The 2017 Amalia Chardonnay aged in 75% new French oak and is 100% barrel fermented. The wine is named for co-founder Amalia Palmaz, who asked her husband, Dr. Julio Palmaz, to add a white wine to the winery’s offerings.
