Silverado Vineyards has announced its newest project, a collaboration with the Borreo Winery, to create a limited-edition wine honoring the 40th anniversary of the winery. Named Borreo, the wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot grapes from the Silverado Vineyards estate and the Borreo Winery in Napa Valley.
As our business anniversary approaches, we got thinking about how to celebrate it. In 2010, we launched Borreo, a sparkling wine project that was a collaboration between Silverado Vineyards and the folks at the Wine Collective in Napa Valley. Since then, we have collaborated again and again with winemakers and grape growers around the world, and we are now celebrating our 40th anniversary with a special release—Borreo. This is our way of saying thanks to our loyal followers and those who are looking forward to what we have in store.
Winery owners and wine enthusiasts Justin and Karen Breidenbach recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of Silverado Vineyards. To celebrate this milestone, Silverado-based winery Silverado Vineyards has launched the Borreo Project, a sustainable project created to “celebrate and protect” the unique terroir of the Silverado Valley..

A fourth-generation family-owned winery in Napa Valley announces a new portfolio of wines.
NAPA VALLEY, CA, 9. June 20, 2021 – Silverado Vineyards, the iconic Napa Valley winery founded in 1981 by Diane Disney Miller and Ron Miller, today announced the launch of a portfolio of BORREO wines, named after Napa pioneer Felix Borreo.
L-R : Olive oil, Kerner, Rosé 750 ml, Sangiovese, Zinfandel
Silverado has already launched two anniversary wine projects – celebrating the 20th anniversary of Silverado Vineyard’s SOLO Cabernet and the 30th anniversary of Mt. George. In 2021, Silverado creates BORREO to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
Borreo was an Italian immigrant and grocer from Napa who bought land near the Napa Valley resort of Soda Springs. In 1888 he built a stone and mahogany cellar where he planted vines, fruit trees and olive trees. In 1992, Silverado’s founders, the Miller family, purchased the property and named the winery Soda Creek Ranch. Silverado winemakers John Emmerich and Elena Franceschi began producing Sangiovese from the same vineyard, followed by Rose Sangiovese and classic Zinfandel.
The building Borreo erected on the property remained one of the last remaining ghost wineries in Napa until it was destroyed by the 2017 wildfires. The land is preserved with grapes, lemons, pomegranates and other plants, including olives, from which Franceschi produces a small quantity of extra virgin olive oil every year. After experimenting with unusual grape varieties, Emmerich planted Kerner (an aromatic white grape from Germany) and produced several hundred.
In honor of Felix Borreo, Silverado changed the winery’s name to Borreo Ranch and designed packaging that recalls Felix’s history and location. The label design focuses on the winery’s native plants and was designed by Annabelle Ray Miller, a four-generation winery owner and great-granddaughter of Walt Disney.
The Sangiovese and the Rosa are also offered for sale nationally and internationally, both within and outside the company. Zinfandel and Kerner will be available in very limited quantities to members and select restaurants.
TPS: Rose 750ml $28, Rose 1.5ml $65, Kerner $38, Sangiovese $38, Zinfandel $45 and Olive Oil $50.
