There doesn’t seem to be a more significant beverage than wine. Cultivated through grapes, wine truly stands alone within the world of alcoholic beverages. A symbol of celebration, it is the preparation and care during production that has given wine the range it has now. Within the industry, no one is more knowledgeable than Ralph Hertelendy of Hertelendy Vineyards.
Located in the heart of the wine production of Napa Valley, Hertelendy Vineyards is where tradition and grapes meet to cultivate wine from the best grapes Napa has to offer. Quality unmatched, Hertelendy’s grapes come from near and far. Taking the best elements from the earth, their vitis vinifera stems come from the soils of the Vaca Mountain range, famous for their volcanic ash and granite-like subsoil. Hertelendy has implemented these tones into their wine production, giving their red wines that rich valley flavor. Attention to detail and grape origin has given Hertelendy Vineyards the coveted rating of 99 points from some of the world’s most astute critics. Valuing quality and luxury over all, Hertelendy has set a new bar when approaching wine production.
Sitting on four plus acres of mountainside land, Hertelendy Vineyards has all the tools necessary in providing clientele with the highest grade of grapes. In Napa Valley, they reign supreme in both wine production and sourcing of grapes. Focusing their attention on six wines, they have finely combed every detail in regards to manufacturing four wines available to the public. The charm and magic of Hertelendy’s wines can also be observed through their wine clubs. A club like no other, it offers a peek into the capabilities and potential that a bottle of wine from Hertelendy possesses. With the option of two clubs, Classic and Elite, Hertelendy has redefined the image of the wine club.
For a Classic member, Hertelendy offers the best that spring and winter has to offer in six bottles, twice a year. With limited quantities of production wine, the Classic Membership is the ideal gateway into the world of Hertelendy Vineyards. Geared with invitations to insider events like the annual harvest party, preferred pricings, and access to lodging accommodations; the Classic Member is just an example of what the Hertelendy’s wine club has to offer.
Elite Club members will feel as though they’re at the vineyards year round. Providing twelve bottles of wine twice a year, it allows members to truly indulge in their passion for wine to the fullest. Bringing the benefits of a Classic membership into a whole new light, the Elite Club is the ideal membership for those true wine connoisseurs. By allowing members these exclusive memberships, Hertelendy has kept the ways of excellence within their name.
Highlighting the importance of exclusivity, club membership is just one of the various ways Hertelendy strives for refinement and elegance in customer satisfaction. As the wine market continues to bloom with new wineries popping up almost every other day, a vineyard like Hertelendy is like a diamond developed over time and delivered in today’s market. Taking generations of wine production into the modern world has both innovated their craft today and preserved the values and practices that the Hertelendy name is built on. A rich history going back as far as the eighteenth century, the name Hertelendy is filled with tradition and prestige. Though the process of wine production has gotten easier along the years, the same end goal of perfection has not been lost with time. Ralph Hertelendy, founder and vintner at Hertelendy Wines, has painstakingly sought out the best grapes and winemaking practices to ensure that the taste of their current day wine is just as delectable and flavorful as it was when his great uncle Gábor Hertelendy made his wines in the Old World.
