Avatar Vinters

Avatar Vintners is the creation of winemaker Gary Wooton and his wife Suzanne Wooton, and as Croze Winery they have been producing handcrafted wines in Napa Valley since 1998. Croze originally focused on cabernet sauvignon, but have now expanded to include sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. Together with winemaker Daniel Benton, they also introduced a second range of wines, Smith Wooton, which features cabernet franc and petite verdot. With both brands they strive to make wines based on balance and old-world style varietal correctness.
