It’s no secret that Posana takes wine seriously. Our Wine Spectator Award-winning cellar houses over 450 wines selected by our sommelier Adam Oxford. Organic, sustainable, and biodynamic are qualities we search for in every bottle. We believe that the story behind each sip is just as important as the grapes themselves.
Lamborn Family Vineyards and winemaker Heidi Barrett epitomize these values.
In 1971, Bob Lamborn and his son Michael purchased forty acres of land at the base of Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. A 100-case vintage, crafted in 1982, was the first of what became a spectacular legacy, spanning three generations and boasting Zinfandels and Cabernet Sauvignons from one of the most sought-after appellations in the world.
In 1991, the Oakland Firestorm destroyed Bob Lamborn’s home. In a tribute to this event and the struggle of rebirth that followed, that year’s vintage was thoughtfully entitled “Phoenix Vintage”, and the story was told on the wine’s back label- a tradition that continues today, with each vintage titled for its growing season and the events surrounding it.
In 1996 the team brought on Heidi Barrett, a winemaker whose career includes legacies at vineyards such as Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle. Her skills have garnered worldwide attention, and earned her the unofficial titles of “winemaking star” and “the First Lady of Wine”. Heidi employs a thoughtful approach, a focus on quality, and an emphasis on enjoying the process of winemaking as much as the result.
