Hollywood & Vine Cellars
Many of you have asked us what “2480” means. When he moved to the valley, Doug purchased a piece of property from the estate of Maynard Amerine. The address was “2480”. Mr. Amerine was a pioneer in the California wine industry. An author and professor at UC Davis, he taught many of the most noteworthy names in the American wine business and impacted the art of winemaking world wide. Doug found one of the books Mr. Amerine had written in the old wine cellar. It was that textbook, that got Doug thinking about the challenge of making great wine. Consequently, the numbers on the bottle are a subtle homage to Maynard Amerine, not only for his contributions to the art and science of fine winemaking in general, but also for his inspirational role in the creation of Hollywood and Vine.
At Hollywood and Vine, we’ve worked tirelessly to find the most sought after, often hidden away, vineyards in the Napa Valley from which to source our fruit. We concentrate on pedigreed terroir, low yielding clones, and labor intensive viticultural techniques in order to produce what we believe are truly extraordinary wines. We encourage you to take a look at our website to learn more about our highly acclaimed, small production Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
