The Clos Du Val vision was established more than 45 years ago...

Our Story

At Clos Du Val, our story is rich in history.

John and Henrietta Goelet founded Clos Du Val in 1972.  A descendant of Bordeaux's famed wine merchant, Barton & Guestier,  John had a vision of producing Cabernet Sauvignon that would rival the world’s best.  French trained winemaker Bernard Portet was selected to head the search for the perfect property from which to produce these wines.  In 1972, two years and five continents later, a parcel in what would become the Stags Leap District in the Napa Valley was chosen to fulfill this lofty dream.  Our inaugural wine, the 1972 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon, was part of the group that topped French wines in the legendary Judgment of Paris blind tasting in 1976. Ten years later, our Cabernet Sauvignon took first place in the Judgment of Paris rematch.

While we are still incredibly focused on the growing and production of the world’s finest wines, history has taught us that the value of what we do is in the connections that wine allows us to create. These connections, between our customers, our vineyards, our wines, our people and our history create a richness of story and purpose that informs and defines the Clos Du Val experience.
