Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the best appellations in California’s North Coast. The North Coast AVA (American Viticultural Area) is one of California's premier wine-growing regions, covering more than three million acres in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake counties, as well as parts of Marin and Solano. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and San Pablo Bay to the south, the area is composed of rugged coastal ranges, volcanic mountains, gentle rolling hills, deep valleys and wide alluvial plains. With tremendous diversity in soil types and microclimates, the North Coast produces grapes that are deeply influenced by terroir, infusing the wines with character and a unique sense of place that can't be found anywhere else in the world.
Aquinas wines were born from our conviction that good wine, one of life’s simple pleasures, should be easily accessible to all. In championing this philosophy we didn’t take the easy route. We headed straight for the esteemed appellations of the North Coast, where we began crafting luxurious wines that would be priced within reach of most wine drinkers.
Aquinas wines are named in tribute of St. Thomas Aquinas, a revolutionary philosopher of the 13th century who used scientific methods to try to prove the existence of a “higher being”. Just as St. Thomas sought to question the assumptions of his world, we seek to challenge the assumptions of ours.
