Apriori is the fruit of a collaboration between Patrice Breton & Georges Sabongui, two very passionate, focused and driven vintners who have been friends since high school. Both Patrice & Georges enjoyed successful careers in the technology industry before dedicating their attention to the craft of wine. They also co-founded and operate Champlain Group LLC, a Private Equity firm specialized in the wine industry. Patrice directs all production operations of Apriori. He also owns and operates Vice Versa Wines, a high-end boutique winery based in Saint Helena. Philippe Melka is the winemaker at the wheel of this small producer.

Beautiful pure ripe red and dark berries, plum, violets and spice. Pliant, pure and expansive on the palate offering a perfect balance between richness and refinement.

Robert Parker 94 Points: “The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, whose fruit comes from both mountains (Howell Mountain) and the valley floor (Yountville) is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in 70% new French oak. It is a tiny cuvée of 86 cases, but an outstanding wine in its lush, blackcurrant fruit, licorice, tobacco leaf, spice box and medium to full-bodied, round and generous personality. Drink it over the next 15 years.”
