Wine Maker(s): Jeff Morgan
The word “covenant”, connotes a strong connection between those whoshare common history, experience and values. It is an age-old concept thatserves as a foundation for all civilization, and its significance is evident in theOld Testament stories of Abraham and Moses.Since those early days, the Jews have accorded wine an important role inspiritual practice, and as such, it merits a special respect. Indeed, the fruit ofthe vine connects us to our land, history and the longstanding bonds thatcome with friendship, family and tradition.Shared cultural heritage and a love of fine wine led to the partnership thatgave birth to Covenant Cabernet Sauvignon and RED C.Our wines come from grapes grown in two single Napa Valley vineyards,from which we strive to harness quality commensurate with the rich andprofound story of the Jewish people.
