Whitney’s Vineyard

Whitney’s Vineyard

Ever wonder what kind of people make the winemaking magic happen? French men in their 50’s tasting various samples from the barrel while plumes of smoke waft in the background? Try, an all-American blond named Whitney Fisher. Whitney grew up on her family’s mountain vineyard between Napa Valley and Sonoma County. She remembers being included in wine tasting dinners from about age 7. Though she ventured off to Princeton, her love of wine…and family…brought her home. Whitney makes one of the most coveted (only 450 cases produced) Chardonnays (Whitney’s Vineyard Chardonnay), and a truly awesome Napa Cab called the "Coach Insignia", continuing the family tradition of excellence that began crafting stage coaches then car bodies for General Motors. Sorry bachelors, Whitney recently married another rising winemaking star of Napa Valley, Nile Zacherle. Besides making wine, their favorite pastimes include shredding the slopes of Jackson Hole, cooking for friends, and enjoying a tasty Barolo or Burgundy with great charcuterie or cheese. Visit www.fishervineyards.com to shop for some of “Whitney’s wines,” or email info@fishervineyards.com to set up a tasting appointment with one of the members of the family. The winery is extraordinarily picturesque, perched atop the steep, trellised hills on the west side of Spring Mountain. Get on the Fisher’s good side--they’ve been known to fire up a pizza in their wood burning oven. Read the entire interview! See what Whitney had to say about her fondest wine memories and greatest wine disasters.
