Join Michael Silacci, winemaker at Opus One since 2001 for an unforgettable dining experience, story-telling and stunning wines.
Opus One is the realized dream of two men: Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. Together, these trailblazers set out to create a single wine dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality. This singular mission shapes every vintage, today and for generations to come.
Guided by the vision of their founders, winemaker, Michael Silacci combines intuition and technical acumen with the dual perspective of viticulturist and winemaker. From tasting berries to careful sorting and extended aging in new French oak barrels, each stage of the winemaking process receives meticulous consideration and attention. After 18 months, the wine is bottled and held an additional 15 months until release on October 1st each year.
