“It’s like Audrey Hepburn in the perfect little black dress…”-Eileen Crane

“It’s like Audrey Hepburn in the perfect little black dress. It’s not just a black dress—it’s a perfectly-lined black dress, with the perfect strand of pearls, the wrap, the whole thing. It’s not fancy, it’s not overdone. In winemaking, I do that. I don’t make blousy wines. I don’t make wines that are heavily out front. I make wines that you need to pay attention to.”

—Eileen Crane, CEO and Chief Winemaker at Domaine Carneros who retired after 33 years, on her winemaking style.
