Come to where great times become wonderful memories and try wines not available anywhere else in the world.
We grow our grapes on more than 20 vineyard sites in Napa and Sonoma, bottling sixteen single-vineyard, single-varietal wines, each expressing its sense of place or terroir.
We then blend some of them to create another seventeen blended wines each expressing its complexity and food affinity.
With over 30 wines there are just too many to taste in one session so our different tasting experiences allow you to explore different wines each paired with a food sample.

Russian River Valley with its marine influence gives us the ability to grow Burgundy varietals such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Dry Creek Valley and Sonoma Valley are ideal for the right bank Bordeaux varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc while Alexander Valley and Napa Valley favor left bank Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The bench land favors the Rhone varietals such as Syrah and Grenanche.
Best-in-the-world quality fruit of all these varieties can be grown here and all within an hour's drive. It is the most challenging and rewarding place on earth for a winemaker and produces some of the greatest wines for wine lovers.
We welcome your pooch — as long as he's a well-behaved registered service dog.
Just as you do, we love our dogs but we don’t want someone tripping and falling so we ask that all visiting service dogs are kept on a lease with a maximum length of two feet.
As everywhere else in public, you need to control your service dog at all times and it must not be disruptive to the general operation of the business.
California law prevents dogs from being in the food service areas and so we ask all visiting dogs to manage their owners outside on the terrace, the sidewalk or the adjoining parking lot.
