THIS IS TRULY A SPECIAL BOTTLE OF WINE.
Made from grapes grown right here at Mont La Salle, this estate reserve Cabernet is handmade by Dave Guffy, The Hess Collection’s celebrated winemaker, with grapes from the two-acre Mont La Salle Vineyard on Mt. Veeder in Napa. Brother Timothy wine is a labor of love, generously donated by The Hess Collection. Less than 275 cases are produced each year and we sell only to our friends and benefactors.

2016 Brother Timothy Mont La Salle Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2018 Brother Timothy Mont La Salle Vineyard Chardonnay
Floral and tropical aromas, crisp acidity, and subtle oak notes. The Su’skol Vineyard benefits from its proximity to the San Pablo and San Francisco Bays. Situated fewer than 10 miles from San Pablo Bay, the cooling marine influence on this vineyard is profound. Morning fog and afternoon breezes lower the average daily temperature, creating an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay. The vineyard is named for the native Su’skol people who used the site as a meeting place and valued the nearby sources of fish and game.
The De La Salle Christian Brothers and their lay partners are stronger than ever today; and the legacy of Brother Timothy, his commitment to serve those in need, continues with the annual release of the Brother Timothy Cabernet Sauvignon.
All proceeds benefit the Lasallian Christian Brothers Foundation and will continue helping underserved youth transform their lives through education.
