40 years ago, Clos Du Val Winery was founded on the honored principles of individuality and independence which guide us to this day.
Being Vindependent means we remain proudly defiant of passing trends and influences, steadfast in our commitment to crafting refined wines of elegance and balance, reflective not of winemaker 'magic', but rather as a fluent expression of the varietal and terroir from which our wines are born.
It has been said that we at Clos Du Val 'march to the beat of our own drum', as if that is a bad thing. We respectfully disagree. We make wines for the wine lover, made to pair with food, to age with strength and grace, in quiet deference to the earth and to mother Nature. We do not make wine in hope of achieving a great score, we make wine in hope of achieving greatness.
Our Vindependence is further grounded in the instinct that comes from farming the same vineyards for nearly four decades, for remaining true to our roots and to our vision. We invite you to join us, enjoy our wines everyday and live as we do, fiercely Vindependent and proud of it.
