Two partners, Borsack and Keys founded B Cellars in 2002 which sits in the heart of the Oakville AVA on Oakville Crossroads. Gorgeous grounds on a knoll overlooking a valley encompass the winery and hospitality buildings as you approach life-size human sculptures depicting everyday life. This is the only winery in the Napa Valley that features a full-service demonstration kitchen. You will enjoy a variety of food and wine pairings as you experience their white and red blends, a 15,000 plus square foot cave and outdoor tastings overlooking vines and olive trees. These wines can be found in some of America’s premium restaurants from Los Angeles, New York, and Las Vegas. With superstar winemaker Kirk Venge at the helm (named one ot the top twenty young winemakers in the world by Food & Wine Magazine), grapes are sourced from some of finest vineyards in Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
Brion Wise founded B Wise Vineyards in 2002 seated on top of a ridge in the Moon Mountain District of the Sonoma Valley. A Mediterranean style mansion/bungalow estate and home to the owner has incredible views and is known specifically for their comfortable and tastefully decorated wine cave. While you are in the cave tasting and looking at fermenting and aging tunnels, you will learn about their red blend wines while taking in the décor from 1920’s Paris with wild-west themed bronzes and vintage furniture.
Our personal and curated tasting experience includes a discussion of our history, unique terroir, and winemaking methods. Guests will explore our current releases while enjoying a spectacular view of Napa Valley if weather permits.
A charming estate steeped in history, Bartholomew had the first recorded vineyard in Sonoma and was part of California’s first commercial winery in 1857. Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and red blends are made in extremely limited quantities and sell out quickly. Tastings can be outdoors beneath stunning mature oak trees or in the gorgeous, newly renovated historic Hacienda winery. Experience Sonoma history and natural beauty at this tucked away gem a few minutes from the Sonoma Plaza.
Beau Vigne has a great philosophy to winemaking that hasn’t changed since we began. Although we fly under the radar as a small boutique winery, we do so with impressive stature and enjoy our “hidden gem” status. We are world renown and recognized by wine critics as a winery that produces exceptional, intense, balanced, rich and multidimensional wines. Beau Vigne is home to family and extraordinary wines, where “great Cabernets are grown, not made.”
Our family’s roots run deep in the Napa Valley. Martin Garzoli, Ed’s grandfather, arrived in the Valley in 1913. He was a Swiss Italian who, in Italy, was trained in winemaking. Martin would work the Hayfields of Napa and Sonoma during the day and make wine in an old barn at night. Nearly 100 years later the Beau Vigne Family is still making wine.
