Story

Located among 45 acres of historic vineyard in St. Helena, Napa Valley along the Silverado Trail, Titus Vineyards is a 2nd generation, family-owned and farmed estate that produces high quality grapes for limited production Napa Valley wines. A partnership between the vineyard and the surrounding environment, Titus Vineyards is also a partnership between the generation of the family that planted the estate and the generation that now farms it, a philosophy that is epitomized by the hard work of two men, brothers Eric (grape grower) and Phillip Titus (winemaker).

The Titus wine style focuses on creating robust reds that complement the Titus brothers' down home character.  Placing equal importance on viticultural and winemaking practices, Eric avoids pesticides, biocides and unnecessary fertilization in the vineyard, while Philip strives to extract as much color, flavor and structure from the grapes, without over-extracting tannins.

Believing that it takes great grapes to make great wines, the brothers aim to create red wines that reflect the family's personal sense of taste and style–full bodied and well balanced. By blending complementary varietals, Titus Vineyards creates wines that are distinctive and balanced, fusing the classic varietal characteristics with the vineyard location.

Titus Family vineyard is located on 40 acres of Napa Valley floor just north of St. Helena on the Silverado Trail. It has well-drained, sandy, alluvial soils and is characterized by its ability to produce complex wines with well-defined fruit flavors, gentle acids and naturally balanced tannins. The vines benefit from their very even east-west exposure resulting in even ripening each year.
