The very first vintage of Gargiulo Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon was 2000, and since then Gargiulo Vineyards has quietly taken its place among the most highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Napa Valley. Not ones to rest on their laurels, Jeff, Valerie, daughter, April and son in law, Mitch and the entire Gargiulo Vineyards’ team continue to strive to make Gargiulo wines the most pure and breathtaking expressions of their two esteemed Oakville vineyards.
In 2006, over 100 years after Joseph Pelissa came to Napa Valley, the Pelissa family decided to create their own wines from the grapes they grow. Ghost Block Estate Wines, comprised of three separate brands, are meant to showcase this unpretentious family’s pride in where they live, the vineyards they farm, and their family’s deep roots in Napa Valley history.

Girard Winery began in 1975 as a dream of a father-son duo. The two shared a passion for high quality wines, a respect for the Valley’s rich history and a pioneering spirit. 25 years later, another vintner with the same passion for winemaking and roots deep in the Napa Valley is continuing the Girard legacy.
Inspired by a centuries-old understanding of the balance between earth and wine, we pursue winegrowing with a respect for each vine and for each person in our extended family. Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards implemented the Code of Sustainable Winegrowing Practices and became certified in 2016.
Originally founded in 1985 by David and Colleen Topper, this small boutique winery is just five minutes from many famous restaurants in downtown Yountville and now family owned and operated by Chris Coors Ficeli, the great great granddaughter of Adolph Coors of the Coors Brewing Company. As you travel to the estate on State Lane in Yountville, one of the many backroads, you can enjoy the view from their vineyards, take in a tour, relax on the scenic deck, or watch the production of grapes as it turns to wine. Taste their Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot which are favorites here and boast incredible flavors!
