“A visit into the world of excellent wine making”
The two eventually acquired a weekend estate in Napa and slowly immersed themselves in the culture of winemaking. They first spent time studying how to best plant a vineyard. Next came a careful 10 years nurturing the vineyard and finally the winery itself. Built underground to provide the desired cool, humid conditions, the winery utilizes a combination of rotary fermenters and classic oak cuves from Cognac to help create the Jarvis Estate signature style of wines. Another important activity is a music conservatory the Jarvis' founded in the Napa Valley. Housed in a 100-year-old stone winery building, the Conservatory conducts master classes in the various arts that comprise operas. Their annual opera workshops culminated in area-wide “Festivals of the Zarzuela” bringing Spanish opera to the United States. A Baroque Dance Workshop followed. Leticia is now bringing new art film presentations to Napa including current European opera productions via the internet and presented in High-Definition. Other activities of the Jarvis Conservatory include workshops and performance for the annual Puppet Festival, as well as the Napa Valley Youth Symphony. Both Jarvis Estate and the Jarvis Conservatory draw upon a lifetime of education and are part of the Jarvis’ celebration of their lives passions.
