Robin's road to Napa Valley took him around the globe, through eight consecutive and exhausting harvests, picking up an impressive list of mentors along the way. In 2016, he took over winemaking for Clos Pegase, one of the Napa Valley’s landmark wineries. Working collaboratively with the winemaking team, Robin gets to work with great vineyards and bring out the very best of the grapes each wintage. By working with these same three vineyards over the decades, Robin have gotten to know the nuances that can be brought out in each wine leading to an unmatched style and level of quality.
Clos Pegase has always been known for its great estate-grown and bottled wines. The "Estate" designation means that the wines are made exclusively from grapes grown in our own vineyards and under our control. This requires a significant investment of time and money in vineyard management, but results in a higher level of quality that clearly comes through in the final wine.
Internationally-acclaimed architecture and a commitment to estate-grown Napa Valley wines make Clos Pegase Winery (part of the Vintage Wine Estates family of wines) one of the most distinctive wineries in the world. Clos Pegase wines are pure expressions of Napa Valley terroir. From its four parcels totaling 450 acres of Estate Vineyards, Clos Pegase has farmed these sites for four decades giving the winery unusual insight into the nuances of each.
