Opus One is the product of two families who shared a passion for wine and a desire to explore new possibilities. Today, our world expands far beyond the present of each vintage. Just as we look back on experience, we are always looking forward for inspiration.
Veraison: Grapes in Transition
As warmer weather continues and the peak of summer arrives, Mother Nature orchestrates a fascinating change in the vineyard. The grapes, which have been a pale green hue, begin to change into a lovely deep shade of purple, marking the onset of berry ripening and maturity. This annual part of the grape’s life cycle marks a turning point towards the exciting harvest season ahead.
"Wherever wine grapes are grown, it is beautiful."
“Making a great wine is easy; it’s just the first 100 years that are difficult.”
Baron Phillipe De Rothschild
“Wine should express itself. It should tell you where it came from.”
