The Odette Estate was founded by three individual partners, Gordon Getty, Gavin Newsom, and John Conover, part of the PlumpJack Group which purchased it in 2012. Odette is located in the Stag’s Leap district just east of the Silverado Trail. The property has been renovated to display a chic and modern design in their hospitality center and is one of only a few wineries to boast a living green roof planted to grasses and plants as well as solar panels. They are known for their red wines, they boast 18,000 feet of caves, and a beautiful lounge which encompasses their stellar views. This is a winery not to be missed!
Hand-crafted wines from the Harris Family Vineyards in the heart of the Oakville appellation in Napa Valley. Tireless advocates of eco-friendly farming and enviormental stewarship. Famed winemaker Heidi Barrett has been producing the wines since 1991.The essence of time is expressed in Opus One by the character of each vintage. Place, often defined as terroir, represents the geography, the climate and the essential human element which is captured in the wine’s balance between power and finesse, structure and texture.
The history of Orin Swift Cellars dates back to 1995 when on a lark, David Swift Phinney took a friend up on an offer and went to Florence, Italy to spend a semester “studying”. During that time, he was introduced to wine, how it was made, and got hooked. A few more years of university led to graduation and eventually a job at Robert Mondavi Winery in 1997 as a temporary harvest worker. Deciding that if he was going to work this hard, it would eventually have to be for himself, he founded Orin Swift Cellars in 1998; Orin is his father’s middle name and Swift is his mother’s maiden name. With two tons of zinfandel and not much else, he spent the next decade making wine for others as well as himself and grew the brand to what it is today.
