A rustic winery on the west side of Silverado Trail coming up from the town of Napa. Driving up to winery through the vineyard is quite beautiful. You may be greeted by a dog or two. The tasting room is furthest out and may not be obvious. This winery says they are the only producer of late harvest Cabernet Sauvignon. Van der Heyden also produces non-late harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay.
The tasting room is quite small and has a sundry of paper items on the walls—you will find your eye darting from one item to the next—the principal’s owner is Dutch so you will se A very laid back and back in a different era. This winery may not be for everyone but it is fun to see the casual and no nonsense tasting room. The tasting room staff are quite nice and helpful and proud of their wines.
