At the Ackerman Heritage House, you are invited to travel back in time to Napa's historic Victorian Era. A time when stately homes and elegant furnishings beckoned you to relax, converse and share life’s most memorable moments. Take in the luxuriously appointed ambiance while sipping on world class wines and indulging in a curated culinary affair.
The Bernards founded a small boutique winery in 1992 in Napa’s Coombsville sub appellation about 10 minutes from downtown Napa. Tucked away off the beaten path and boasting nothing flashy from the outside, the property and vineyards display a rich history. Ancien is known for its high quality Pinot noirs and Chardonnay’s where you can taste them in a relaxed setting under oak trees overlooking the vineyards. One of the smallest functioning winery caves in Napa is located here and a tour and tasting will include a lesson in soil vineyard sampling which has an important role in the character of their wines.
