Fittingly, Aonair is Gaelic for “one man” and reflects Grant Long Jr’s passion for handcrafted small-lot wines. These outstanding wines are only available at the winery. Grant Long Jr. founded Aonair Wines in 2008 after learning to make wine in a garage growing up and being mentored by great winemakers throughout his life. Located in the rugged, forested hills of St. Helena about 12-15 minutes from the valley floor and Silverado Trail, this small winery has the feeling of a luxury cabin lodge. Enjoy a roaring fire, wander outside on the deck with the fire-pit, and enjoy incredible views of the hillside and vineyards. Rich full-bodied red blends and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a flagship white wine are produced in extremely limited barrel quantities.
With a winemaking legacy that dates back to 1551 in Spain, the Raventos family knew that the Carneros region offered the best Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and Cabernets for their sparkling and still wines. With breathtaking views that stretch all the way to San Francisco and stunning architecture, this is a “must see while in Napa” winery.
