A Luscious Napa Valley Red Blend with Black Fruit Aromas
The Frias Family Vineyard
was founded in 1991 by Manny Frias and is the first ever bonded Mexican-American winery in the Napa Valley
appellation of California
. Today, the Frias family produces a limited collection of wines from the 13 acres of their property that are planted to vines in the Spring Mountain District
and Saint Helena
sub-appellations. At Frias Family Vineyard, the winemaking begins out among the vines, with very careful attention paid to selecting only the very best quality fruit. The eye-catching label of the Frias "Lady of the Dead
" cuvée pays homage to the rich Mexican ancestry of the Frias family, depicting Santa Muerte, a very important character in Mexican culture.
