Cervantes Family Vineyards
This 1,100-acre ranch isn’t just a winery. It’s a place that will bring you back to a simpler time of rugged, unplugged, good old-fashioned fun. Cervantes Family Vineyards is situated in Napa’s last frontier, and there’s nothing better to have next to a roaring campfire than a glass of full-bodied red wine.
At the very bottom of the Mayacamas mountains is a quaint town called St. Helena. Nestled in its foliage is Anomaly Vineyards, specializing in high-quality cabernet sauvignon. Anomaly appreciates the ups and downs of Mother Nature, and its wines reflect the grace and exquisite uniqueness that comes with letting nature take the reins.
Skipstone Wines knows that wine should reflect the land from which it came. This beautiful estate produces wines that it believes are honest and elegant. Everyone who visits the winery does so with a private reservation, so you are sure to have the individual experience of a lifetime.
When the soil is rich, the fruit is as well, and the wine is exceptional. Dana Estates produces only the finest wines grown from the most fertile soil. Dana wines are made in small lots to ensure the utmost quality.
Arrow and Branch
The Arrow and Branch vineyard is just northeast of Napa’s central city in Tulocay. The cool breezes sweeping through the Golden Gate combined with the early burning morning fog slow down the ripening process of the grapes, making them burst with flavor and character.
Seven Apart winery does not actually host public tastings or visits; however, valued members have the exclusive privilege of getting an inside look at how Seven Apart makes its exquisite wines.
Frank Family Vineyards
One of the best parts of a memorable winery is when they have a unique building. Frank Family Vineyards’ yellow Craftsman building houses the tasting room, which was voted as the “Best Napa Tasting Room” in 2022.
