Dr. Madaiah Revana is a successful Cardiologist in Houston whose desire to have a vineyard in Napa Valley was shaped by a visit in 1997. Once he decided on the place, he dove in and hired the best winemaking and vineyard management team available. Vineyard Manager Jim Barbour has his boot-prints all over the Valley and his name alone instantly commands notice for a new property. Paired with one of the most respected winemakers in the world, Heidi Peterson Barrett, big things were naturally expected. Barbour developed the site into an eight-block mix of four different classic Bordeaux varieties with the exception of Merlot. Peterson Barrett's resume was already brimming with successes elsewhere, including Paradigm, Dalla Valle, Jones Family, Screaming Eagle, Grace Family, Amuse Bouche, Showket and her own La Sirena.
