Having the proper skills and knowledge in any field is critical to surviving within an industry—especially one as competitive as wine-making. Some even thrive. Ralph Hertelendy is among those thriving individuals, pouring his vast wine-making talents, knowledge and expertise into his award-winning craft at Hertelendy Vineyards. Alongside wine consultant Phillip Corallo-Titus, Hertelendy merges Old World traditions with New World innovation to improve the wine experience landscape while maintaining a level of excellence which has become synonymous with the Hertelendy name.
Every detail is meticulously taken into consideration within the Hertelendy wine-making production—beginning with the soil the grapes are planted on. The idyllic rocky and volcano ash-rich soil located in the slopes of Napa Valley’s Vaca Mountain range is what gives Hertelendy red wines their complex and elegant taste. As for whites, the clean pristine taste of Hertelendy’s Chardonnay is credited to the deep clay soil of the neighboring Russian River Valley. Having had the insight to locate these premium locations, Ralph knows what it takes to make some of the best wine in the world.
