About DVO

Great wines come from great relationships. The working friendship between Maya Dalla Valle, the second-generation winemaker at Napa’s Dalla Valle Vineyards, and... Axel Heinz, Ornellaia’s winemaker until 2023, spawned DVO, a line of red wines with Napa fruit and Italian winemaking sensibility. Maya, who assumed the role of winemaker at her parents’ Dalla Valle Vineyards estate in 2021, has deep roots at Ornellaia — she worked at the Bolgheri estate for the 2013 vintage and found a mentor in Axel. With guidance from Naoki Dalla Valle and Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja of Ornellaia, Maya and her DVO team uses the fruit from cooler vineyards to create a singular wine that synthesizes the Dalla Valle Vineyards and Ornellaia. The inaugural 2018 bottling of DVO’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc blend arrived with great critical and collector fanfare, marking a new wine to watch — and enjoy!

About Dalla Valle Vineyards

In 1982, Naoki and Gustav Dalla Valle came to Oakville, California, and purchased a small property looking out over the valley high in the Vaca Mountains. The couple intended to open a resort, but Gustav, whose family had long grown wine in northern Italy, recognized the potential of the iron-rich, rocky soils. Dalla Valle Vineyards released its first vintage just four years later, finding fame with the 1992 vintage of its Cabernet blend, Maya. After Gustav passed in 1995, Naoki took control of the estate, and with her team, she brought the organically grown 20-acre estate to even greater heights. In 2021, daughter Maya, who trained at both Cornell University and Bordeaux’s Sciences Agro University, became the estate’s winemaker. Dalla Valle Vineyards takes a hands-on, intensive approach to tending their 18 parcels of vines, a practice that Maya calls “precision farming.” The estate crafts three rare, exceptional wines every year, and when vintages are exceptional, also makes its highly sought-after MDV Cabernet Sauvignon.

About Opus One

In 1970, two titans of wine came together in a chance meeting at a hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii. A little less than a decade later, Opus One was born. How... could this Napa Valley estate be anything other than the cult phenomenon that it is? After all, it’s not every day that Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Bordeaux’s of Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi of Napa Valley’s Robert Mondavi Winery join forces to create a singular Bordeaux-style blend that unites the New World terroir of its Oakville vineyards and the Old World style of its historical roots (in the 1990s, the winery began occasional releases of a second wine, the nonvintage Overture). In 1984, the first two vintages of Opus One hit the markets as both the 1979 and 1980 bottlings saw release. The wine became an immediate collector classic, and more than forty vintages later, Opus One remains one of the most expensive, most collectible, and most lauded Napa Valley wines. While Robert Mondavi sold its half of Opus One to Constellation Brands in 2004, but the Rothschilds retain the other half, and Opus One continues to hold onto its status of one of the greatest cult collector wines from California.
