Godspeed Vineyards

3655 Mt. Veeder Road
Napa, CA 94559


Godspeed is an artisan grower in the Mount Veeder Appellation of Napa Valley situated at an altitude of 1500 ft. The vineyard is the project of the the Larry Stricker family. Larry is an acclaimed architect who has created world class resort hotels, including the Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona; the Marriott Desert Springs Resort and a series of Hawaiian properties including the Halekulani, Kahala Resort, Kapalua Bay Hotel and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. At his Mount Veeder estate, he has over time sold his world-class fruit to recognized wineries including Robert Craig, Bremmer, William Hill, Newton & Monticello. Since 1990 he has taken advantage of his exceptional  vineyard by bottling half his production under his own label. Three wines are produced at Godspeed: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Trinity. All three are made in a very elegant, almost "European: style, with an emphasis on the vineyard's unique microclimate, as expressed in the wine's balance and fruit element. The current release Chardonnay, with no malolatic fermentaion, is made to age, and should continue to drink beautifully for the next five years. The Cabernet, from the exceptional 1999 vintage to the even bigger 2001, has a structured style with a deep dark color and richness on the palate. The newest offering TRINITY is a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. A mouthfilling, fruit forward blend made to drink younger yet still exhibiting the uniqueness of Mount Veeder.
