Dana Estate was named after the Sanskrit term meaning “the Spirit of Generosity.” Dana’s wines certainly live up to their name, delivering generously bold, fruit forward, full bodied Napa Cabs.
The winery was established by a South Korean businessman Hi Sang Lee, who was influenced by and consulted with some of the greatest Napa wineries and wine makers including Joseph Phelps and Philippe Melka. With their help and expertise, Lee pushed to produce some of the highest quality and very rare, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon’s in the world focusing on four vineyards: Helms, Hershey, the lauded Lotus as well as their newest vineyard, Crystal Springs. Dana certainly lives up to its name, so in the spirit of Dana estates, be generous to your taste buds and try these incredibly rare gems!
