H&G Collector's Edition is an exclusive series of artisanal wines sourced from the finest winegrowing regions.  Nurtured from vine to bottle, the grapes are hand harvested and aged in French Oak.  The Chalk Hill AVA, named for its chalky white soils, is nestled within the Russian River Valley and is ideal for growing our elegent H&G Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon with its volcanic soils and warm climate.  Embodying the beauty of this area, this wine's savory texture, velvety tannins, and elegent dark fruit enable it to age gracefully for 8-10 years.

Richard Mansfield

Winemaker, North American Wines, Blend Poet

A highly accomplished and passionate winemaker, Richard applies his sophisticated intellect to everything he does. In college, he learned German just to meet girls. To party with his friends, he made wine. That brainy approach to having fun eventually landed him in the wine business. After earning his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from the University of Oregon, he moved to Germany for a 3-year apprenticeship, and completed his dual Master's degrees in Viticulture and Enology from Germany's famed Institute of Winemaking in Geisenheim. He then moved back to the States and established his own winery, Callahan Ridge, in Oregon. Driven to expand his knowledge and extend his mastery, he moved to Napa, where he honed his skills as Winemaker at well-respected wineries such as Stags' Leap Winery, Palmaz Vineyards and the Bradford Mountain Winery. He joined WX in 2008 and his experience and depth of knowledge made an instant impact on the team. He has a deep commitment to quality and an exceptional ability for creating innovative blends that bring forward the best in each varietal. Away from work, Mansfield spends time with his wife Leslie at their home in St. Helena.
