Napa Valley's Rudd Oakville Estate joins FMV portfolio

by Phoebe

We are pleased to announce that Rudd Oakville Estate will be joining our family of USA producers. Situated in Oakville, Napa Valley, they are growers of organic grapes over exceptional terroir producing world class, stunning wines.

Family-owned and run, Rudd Oakville Estate has focused on organic viticulture since it was founded by husband and wife team Leslie and Susan Rudd in 1996. The family see their role as stewards of the land whose responsibility is to fulfil their generational promise to do better than the preceding generation. It is now Leslie and Susan’s daughter Samantha, who runs the estate, working alongside winemaker Frederick Ammons. She spent several years working outside of the family business learning from some of the best in the world, including Château Margaux and Spottswoode.

The first two wines we will be listing include:

• 2014 Estate Red

• 2014 Samantha’s Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Oscar Henquet, Managing Director at Rudd Oakville Estate comments: “Our new partnership with Fields, Morris & Verdin, part of the Berry Bros & Rudd business is an incredible and exciting opportunity. This relationship is the result of an aligned vision between our companies and we are looking forward to sharing the Rudd Estate wines and story with the UK market.”

USA Wine Buyer, Fiona Hayes adds: “We are delighted to start the year by introducing our partnership with such a high-quality grower and are glad to be welcoming Rudd Estate into our increasingly sought-after North American range. Having recently visited Rudd Estate, we were convinced by their wine’s innate quality and how their overall philosophy was so well-suited to our portfolio.”
