It is particularly known for its flagship Maya cuvée, which is one of the most prestigious of all Californian wines. The 1992, 2002, 2013 and 2016 wines have all received 100-point scores from The Wine Advocate publication. The estate was founded in 1986 (although it was purchased in 1982) by former scuba diver and diving equipment entrepreneur Gustav Dalla Valle and his wife Naoko. After Gustav's death in 1995, just as the winery was gaining cult status, Naoko, whose family background includes Sake production, took control of the estate. Naoko is widely credited with having maintained, if not augmented, the winery's reputation into the 21st Century. While internationally renowned winemaking consultant Michel Rolland remains part of the team, the winery has a star-studded roster of past winemakers, including Heidi Peterson Barrett, Mia Klein, Steve Mathhiasson and Andy Erickson (previously of Screaming Eagle).
