About Us / Ardente Winery History: The rich volcanic soil, ideal 1500 ft elevation and micro climate on Atlas Peak provide us with a nearly perfect environment for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The rocky terrain forces the vines to work hard and produce small quantities of very concentrated fruit. The long growing season allows the grapes to mature and develop complex flavors and tannins. Derek’s philosophy is to make wines that reflect the terroir, are well balanced with subtle tannins and longevity. The wines are aged to enjoy upon release, with a variety of food.
