A partnership between Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi that started in 1979 in Oakville, California. Today Opus One is jointly owned by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A., and Constellation Brands.
Overture is a second expression of Opus One, made from parcels that do not make into the final blend of Opus, but farmed with the same dedication and precision as Opus One.
Those parcels are afforded additional time in barrel and will later be blended to create a multi vintage cuvee. First vintage produced was 1993.
The blend is around 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec.
