Nowadays, the majority of wine makers destem the grapes i.e. the stems are not used during fermentation, the stems increase the roughness of the wine.

In this appellation, it is allowed to blend 15% of white wines, made from Marsanne and Roussanne, into red wines.

Howell Mountain, a US appellation (AVA) that belongs to the district of Napa Valley, which belongs to the wine region of the North Coast in California. In 1983, the Howell Mountain was officially designated as an appellation (AVA). The appellation has 607 ha under vine. The vines begin at 427 m and extend to 762 m. The Howell Mountain appellation is one of five mountain appellations in Napa Valley. Because of its altitude, evening temperatures are generally warmer and daytime temperatures are much cooler, causing a gradual growth process, producing small, concentrated grapes and ultimately more robust, complex but well-balanced wines with a long, lingering after-taste. From here comes Napa’s longest lived Cabernet Sauvignon- and Cabernet Franc-wines. (2019-04)
