This winery has been named 'Top Artisan Winery of the Year' by Wine & Spirits Magazine and creates some of the most sought-after wines in all of America. The wines are difficult to come across as they are sold at only select locations across the country, and connoisseurs pay top dollars for these exclusive bottles. St. Supery and Peju Wineries is open to the public, and you can visit it any day of the week.
Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Alexis (a Cabernet Sauvignon blend) are the main wines produced here. This family venture has proved very successful, with over 27,000 cases produced annually. Not a single drop of this wine is processed outside the estate—a matter of great pride to the Swansons. The salon is modeled along the lines of a 19th-century Parisian salon; its interiors display beautiful furniture and wall paintings, while the surroundings are green and lined with trees, giving it a country-home effect.
This wine estate is named after the giant Sequoia trees that are found aplenty here. Established in 1980, this plantation-cum-winery specializes in Bordeaux wines. The most special amongst their collection are the classy Cabernet Sauvignon and the Napa Valley Chardonnay. The vineyard also has an exclusive wine club where you can taste the wines from the premium collections before they are manufactured for the public.
Founded in 1973 by former photographer Jack Cakebread, this winery has produced a plethora of award-winning vintages. The winery produces 85,000 cases annually and is best known for its classic rich Rutherford Cabernets, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The entire family is involved with the winery operation, which includes promoting healthy food. The Cakebreads founded the American Harvest Workshop, an annual four-day event that promotes local agriculture and involves chefs, winemakers and farmers. The family also sells organic produce grown on winery grounds when available. Tours and tastings are by prior appointment only.
Founded as Inglenook in 1880, the historic Rubicon Estate has the honor of being one of the few remaining family-owned wine estates of its magnitude in existence. It is comprised of 235 acres (95 hectares) of organically certified vineyards, and is located in Napa Valley's Rutherford appellation. Rubicon Estate is home to the region's most famous Chateau and Rubicon—the estate's flagship wine. Dominated by a special clone of Cabernet Sauvignon that can be traced back to the original vineyard plantings of 1880, Rubicon is a Bordeaux blend that reflects the unique terrain of this property. In addition to the collection of award-winning wines, Rubicon Estate offers an array of tours and tastings, some historical, others are hands-on and interactive. From guided walks through the vineyard to barrel sample tasting in the cellar, the property's tour guides are experts at creating dynamic wine experiences for all guests. The estate also is home to the Centennial Museum housing memorabilia from Francis Ford Coppola's movies.
You simply cannot afford to miss the Viogneir, with its smooth texture, laced with an aroma, fruity and strong, that captivates the heart and leaves it craving for more. 2004 Syrah—strong with a hint of blackberry, black currant, black pepper and cinnamon is yet another heavenly wonder from the treasure of Turnbull Cellars. However, Cabernet Sauvignon is the one that is chiefly planted across the huge acres of land holding the vineyard firm and fruity. No wonder the wines produced from such flavored berries have a zing to their taste.
This vineyard, established in 1985, believes in making wines and donating a part of their profits to a cause. The management of the Staglin Family Vineyard certainly has their hearts in the right place as they have donated at least a staggering USD665 million since 1985. The winery caves are managed by solar power and well water. The estate also has majestic olive trees, native grasses, clover and lavender trees, along with thriving bee hives.
Nickel and Nickel is well-known for its collection of vineyards and single-vineyard wines. Established in 1997, they have wines that include a fusion of some of the rarest single-vineyard wines. Experience and skill are present to ensure that the customer may be able to understand the terroir and the land where the wine is being made from. Guided tours that begin at Sullenger House go through the historic Nickel and Nickel Farmstead and ends in a guided tasting of four selected single-vineyard wines.
