Established in 1981 by Ron and Diane Miller, this winery has been producing proprietor-grown wines that possess richness, elegance and age-worthiness. Over time, the Miller family has assembled a rich and diverse mosaic of six family-owned sustainably farmed vineyards, each selected for its ability to contribute nuance and character to the wines. Silverado has always searched for quality by implementing state-of-the-art viticultural techniques and creative winemaking methods. From its early use of extended maceration (a common technique today) to its recent focus on newly-designed small, stainless steel barrels in its Chardonnay program Today, winemaker Jonathan Emmerich continues Silverado's reputation for excellence and consistency, handcrafting estate wines that combine classic structure with understated elegance.

Tasting notes
Deep dark red color. Upfront fruit aromatics of ripe raspberry and dried cranberry with middle eastern spices adding an exotic note throughout. On the palate, a vibrant acidity emphasizes the juicy red fruit flavors that persist on a long finish.
