“Last year, Napa Valley lost Leslie Rudd, a beloved figure and an anchor in the wine industry. Founder and proprietor of his eponymous Oakville wine estate on Oakville Cross Road’s “Golden Mile” (surrounded by luminaries like Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle), Rudd was a mighty but gentle force in defining what a “First Growth” Napa wine estate should be: a producer of the finest wine possible each year from one of the AVA’s great vineyards, surrounding the winery itself. A place the winery’s best customers would want to come to for an experience akin to a visit to a great Bordeaux château.”
