Accendo Cellars

Accendo Cellars is the Araujo Family’s new project after selling their namesake label to François Pinault’s Artemis Group in 2013.  The team is comprised of familiar names (Michel Rolland, Françoise Peschon, and Steve Matthiasson) and incorporates the next Araujo generation (Jaime and Greg).

Inspired by the revolutionary Napa Valley wines of the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s, Accendo pays homage to an earlier era and marks a beginning of a promising new paradigm: to source grapes from some of the finest vineyard sites and terroir in Napa Valley; to make a wine of balance and restraint in the style of Napa Valley’s past wines; and to produce this wine with the commitment, energy and meticulous attention to detail that have characterized their past efforts.
