Husic Vineyards

Napa Valley, California

In 1995 Julie and Frank Husic purchased 120 acres in and above the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Looming anti-hillside planting laws prompted them to plant three hillside Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, totaling 7 acres, with the help of esteemed vineyard manager Jim Barbour in 1997.  These vineyards slope over 40 degrees, from approx. 900 feet to the Valley floor. 2001 was the first vintage of Husic Cab. In 2010 they added Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, both from single family vineyards located in Sonoma Coast and farmed by Dutton Ranch. In 2013 a Late Harvest of Semillon was added to the line-up. And a few lucky clients get to purchase the very limited amount of Husic Estate Rosè of Cabernet Sauvignon each year.  Husic Vineyards also produces an estate Cabernet under the Palm Terrace Label. The two Cabernets differ by blending from the three vineyards. Michael Hirby is the winemaker since 2010. The Husics are blessed with two sons, FJ and Paris, who also enjoy the family wine business!
