The tectonic plates that slammed together to form Mount George and the other noteworthy peaks at the southern end of the Napa Valley had long since settled by the time that Henry Hagan arrived in California in 1852. Drawn north from San Francisco by the allure of untamed wilderness and unbridled natural beauty, the industrious Hagan founded Cedar Knoll Vineyard and Winery in 1881 and set about the business of viticulture with the spirit of a pioneer. Hagan experienced success with his wines, growing grapes in the unheard of Napa Valley and serving them mostly to locals in the Opera Houses and other upscale establishments of the Bay Area.

“Our approach is to farm the individual vines so that the fruit they produce all ripens together as a group. We’re trying to do that by employing technology that allows us to analyze macro-level data to help us understand the vineyard at the micro-level. ”

Geographic information systems, which are used to store, analyze and manage such geographic data as soil types, cropping patterns and rainfall, are the future of farming, says Christian Palmaz, president of Palmaz Vineyards, in the Coombsville AVA, near Napa, Calif.

“Tecnologically speaking, Palmaz is one of the area’s most impressive state-of-the-art wineries.  The Palmaz family purchased the property, previously owned by Henry Hagen during the nineteenth century, in the 1990s with the idea of bringing back and enhancing its former glory.  Julio and Amalia Palmaz, along with their kids, Florencia and Christian Gastón set out to create a winery that synergistically combines timeless tradition with cutting edge technology.”

Palmaz Vineyards melds futuristic innovation with ancient winemaking techniques
FROM SELF-DRIVING CARS TO 3-D PRINTERS, advances in technology get a lot of buzz in the news—as they should. Some, like cancer-detecting blood tests or holographic computers, have world-changing potential. When it comes to winemaking, however, the scienti c breakthroughs are relatively quiet. In a romantically antiquated fashion, winemaking is done much as it has been for thousands of years—leaving it to fate and the elements to determine taste and quality. The progressive-thinking Palmaz family, however, thinks otherwise; they believe wine and technology, like a crisp Sancerre with oysters, are a perfect pairing.

There’s a place for socially responsible technology in winemaking, Palmaz Vineyards president says
