Raymond has chosen vineyard properties in two important regions of California – Napa Valley and Monterey county. Both of these regions are excellent for growing wine grapes because of the balance of important weather factors – sunshine, rainfall, and temperature. Roy and Craig Raymond agreed, "Our wet winters, moderate springs, warm and fog-cooled summers, and the hot, dry autumns make Northern California one of the most favored areas in the world to grow winegrapes. This is surely the place where the vine is meant to reach its peak of quality."
Stylish and well-balanced, these wines are produced from selected vineyards
throughout the Napa Valley . Rich, ripe fruit characteristics are evident in all
the wines, balanced by the influence from oak aging. The consistently superb
quality has earned these wines a very devoted following. “Each vintage we focus
on creating wines of great depth and complexity, yet already drinkable upon
release. We recognize that some buyers are concerned with choosing wine for
dinner, while some are collecting wines to store in their cellars, and we
produce wines to serve both markets. Their goal is to provide superb, enjoyable
wines vintage after vintage.” Walter Raymond, winemaker.
