Toad Hall Cellars

Toad Hall Cellars is owned by John Komes and his family; if the last name rings a bell it is because this family is also synonymous with Flora Springs Winery. They produced their first vintage in 1984 which was merely 10 cases of a Chardonnay...talk about scraping the bottom of a wine barrel! Today, production runs about 1200 cases (still relatively small) and focuses on three wines; two Pinot noirs and a Cabernet Sauvignon. Toad Hall was started by John as a side project to his family's Flora Springs Cellars. Toad Hall owns several vineyards; their original vineyard is 6 acres just off of Highway 29 in Rutherford planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and they also have a 10-acre vineyard in the Carneros region planted to Pinot noir.

Sawyer Cellars

The property was replanted in 1984 and purchased by the Sawyer family in 1994. The vineyard extends back to the Napa River and is planted mostly with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, although they also grow some Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc. Total production is only 6,400 cases, and all of their wines are estate grown and bottled. They sell off about 40% of the grapes they grow. A tasting is $10. The tour and tasting is $25. Reservations are required but easily made.

Stonefly Vineyard

Founded more than a decade ago on a passion for fly-fishing and fine wine, StoneFly Vineyards produces extraordinary Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc from premier Napa Valley appellations. Stonefly Vineyard is committed to being thoughtful stewards of the land and their mission to tie fly-fishing and fine wines.

Sloan Estate Wines

Sloan Estate Winery is owned by Sloan Falily Winery LLC and managed by Stuart Sloan of Seattle. The winery makes approximately 300 cases of a proprietary red all from 100 percent estate grapes. The wines are sold for between $200 and $300 and all through a mailing list that is harder to get on than that for a royal wedding.
Robert Parker gave the 2002 vintage a rare 100 points.
Sloan Estate, an ultra-private winery and vineyard in Rutherford, has been sold by owner Stuart Sloan to Goldin Financial Holdings, a Hong Kong-based conglomerate, for $40 million.

According to the Sloan Estate purchase agreement and as reported in Wine Industry Insight, Goldin Financial Holdings is an investment company engaged in Japanese restaurant operations, consumer electronics, financial investments and the wine business.

“There has been an explosion of red wine consumption in Asia and Hong Kong, particularly in the high-end wines,” said Jim Carroll, general counsel for Goldin subsidiary Goldin Factoring of Fremont.

“Sloan is one of the best wines coming out of Napa Valley, and it was determined that would be a good place to start in providing more wine to the Asian culture,” he said.

Vinoce Vineyards

VINOCE IS A SMALL, FAMILY-OWNED WINERY owned by Brian and Lori Nuss. Over the last 31 years they have developed an intimate knowledge of growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc on the rugged, hillside slopes of Mount Veeder and are dedicated to creating wines that reflect the true expression of the Mount Veeder appellation.

THE MEANING OF VINOCE, pronounced (vin-o-chay):
It is a play on the Nuss Family name and Brian’s German-Italian heritage. Nuss means "nut" in German. Noce is "nut" in Italian. Intermingled with "vin" for wine, Vinoce means "wine nut."

Wine Garage

Everyone thought they were crazy. Selling wine in Napa Valley that didn’t have a 3 figure price tag? Selling wine in Napa Valley that was from those “other” wine growing regions? Helping people learn about wine who were novices? Suggesting a lesser expensive choice because the customer would have better enjoyment? Ludicrous they said!

Sodero Estate Winery

Don and Deedee Sodaro moved to southern California in 1966 from Chicago, Illinois, the city Giuseppe Sodaro had adopted as his home in America over 70 years earlier. Though the Sodaro passion for wine ran deep, it would be another thirty years before they would be able to realize their dream of starting a winery to carry on the family namesake in the New World. In 1996, their opportunity finally arrived, and so began their search for the perfect terroir. After an extensive nine month search through the central and north coasts, Don and Deedee came upon a magnificent property set among the hillsides and alluvial terraces of the south-east Napa Valley, and immediately they knew they’d found someplace special.
Gorgeous estate located in the Coombsville District, so its a close jaunt to downtown Napa. Fabulous views, and some of the best reds I have had the pleasure of tasting! A reservation is required, but definitely worth the planning to experience this romantic vineyard.

Vintner's Collective is the first of it's kind in Napa Valley, a multi-winery tasting room that is home to twenty of the most experienced and talented winemakers in the Valley. The man behind Vintner's Collective is Garret Murphy, who dreamed of creating a place where wine lovers could taste the wines of some of the best winemakers in Napa Valley, and where smaller wineries without their own tasting room could showcase their wines and introduce them to consumers. With a little Irish luck and good intuition, the location for Vintner's Collective in the landmark Pfeiffer building made the idea a reality, and current changes and growth in downtown Napa made for good timing.

Vintner's Collective is open daily, 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
