France's recent World Cup victory is not the reason for the Tricolore hanging outside the office at Eisele Vineyard in Napa Valley. Artémis Domaines, the holding company of French billionaire François Pinault, took over here in 2013, following the Araujo family stewardship that began in 1990. The accents have changed a bit and there are some tweaks going on in the vineyard and in the wine, but the soul of Eisele Vineyard remains very much intact.
