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.
The history of our estate is compounded in layers; rooted in historic tales of fierce Native American hunting grounds, wild west pioneers and the first woman vintner of California in 1886. It has changed hands over the course of 134 years to become a brewery, restaurant, inn, winery and saloon. Tales of love, lust, heartbreak, murders and great fortune create an imaginative backdrop to our present-day vision of AXR. Today, we are a winery that pays homage to its history and blazes the trail of excitement and innovation in Napa Valley as the pioneers before us did.
What started as a real estate investment turned into a lifestyle change for the Baldacci family as their love and commitment to this property deepened. Lovely, balanced supple wines are featured.
Boich Family Cellar wines encompass a wide range of fruit from the round smooth tannins of Rutherford and Oakville to the broad shouldered and structured mountain fruit from Mount Veeder. All the wines are hand crafted in a new world style that makes them approachable in their youth yet still age worthy. They produce a chardonnay and 5 single vineyard cabs. The tasting includes locally sourced cheeses and charcuterie.
