Wine growers Philip Holbrook and Wil Prim were raised among the terroirs of Napa Valley, and absorbed the elements of the area as if they were vines themselves. It’s no wonder that the wines of REVIK, which they have been making together since 2015, are pure expressions of the soil and setting of their family vineyards, and of the vineyards from which they purchase tiny quantities of fruit. The name REVIK is a combination of “revel,” and “vik,” a word Philip and Wil found in an old dictionary that means time and place. This perfectly represents their feeling that wine is really about the experience of sharing it with friends, and making it a memorable occasion.
Philip grew up in the Coombsville AVA on the land on which the Saphi vineyard was planted in 2013. The name Saphi is a combination of Philip’s and his sister Sasha’s first names. The site is dry-farmed and only organic treatments are used on the vines. The cooler temperatures of this section of Napa, along with its gravel, loam soils, allow for longer hang times, and slower maturation than in other parts of Napa.
