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 Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel is produced from grapes grown on the family’s valley floor vineyard on Silverado Trail just north of St. Helena. The 30+ year-old vines are planted on St. George rootstock and grown without irrigation or “dry-farmed.” This old-world winegrowing practice produces low yields of concentrated fruit.
