The Story

Both Block 7 and Block 22 are located on benchlands west of the town of Napa. The nine acres are between 230 and 300 feet above sea level and have thin, stony soils. The maritime climate is moderated by morning fog and strong afternoon breezes from San Pablo Bay. Block 7 was planted in 1975 to clone 2 Zinfandel. Block 22 was planted in 1995, also to clone 2. The vines are spaced 8’ x 10’, cordon-trained and spur-pruned. In 2018, budbreak was April 10th in Block 7, and April 12th in Block 22. Bloom occurred June 1st. Both blocks were harvested on September 25th. Average bloom-to-harvest was 116 days. Production was 3.02 tons per acre in Block 7, and 4.77 tons per acre in Block 22.

About Hendry

Brand Story

George Hendry and his family have grown grapes on the same family farm in Napa Valley since 1939.

Hendry Ranch is composed of 203 acres situated in the low, rolling hills just northwest of Napa, at the foot of Mt. Veeder, and includes 114 acres under vine. This location in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, allowing us to grow more than a dozen different types of wine grapes. All Hendry wines are made only from estate grapes, and are crafted to highlight the unique terroir of this very special vineyard.
