Inspiration Vineyards & Winery

Overall pretty delectable wines. Their barrel Syrah was amazing...I'm stoked to see how that one turns out. The sommeliers were all friendly and totally knew their stuff. I'd love to go back and check out their Syrah when it's released. Jon will patiently take you through the symphony of his wines - and if you're lucky, perhaps a barrel sample or 2 - and the process by which he follows.

Redmon Family Vineyards

Redmon Family Vineyards began with a very limited scope of producing wine “to share with friends and family.” It has since become a commercial (albeit small), producer located in the St Helena AVA.
The Redmon Family has lived in Napa Valley since 1979. They originally came “for the root beer,” opening an A&W restaurant on Highway 29 in the southern part of St Helena. In 1991, Tom Redmon bought a small vineyard and began the process of making handcrafted wines.
Redmon makes several small quantity bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon. Some grapes are grown on the family’s 3 acre estate property, and others are sourced from other premium quality vineyards in Napa Valley.

Three Steves Wines

3 bottles of 3 Steves Winery wine

The idea for Three Steves Winery was born over 3 friends sitting around having a glass of wine and talking about starting their own winery. Steve Burman, Steve Melander, and Steve Ziganti all owned part of a small boutique winery where together they learned the art, science, and the business of the wine industry. The Trio had made lots of wine together, and our friends gave them some nice feedback on their wines. Before long this Trio realized they wanted to build their own label from the ground up, and the obvious choice was to name their new project the Three Steves Winery. If you drop in any weekend you will likely find one or more of the Steves their pouring wine and chatting with visitors. Be sure to give their Tres Gringos Chilean Blend (yes - grapes and Chili), Zig's Blend Zinfandel and Three Red Heads Blend and there are more to enjoy as well. Take a picnic lunch with your and make it a day with the whole family, even the pets. While in Livermore Wine Country be sure to stop in and have a visit with the owners and winemakers at Three Steves Winery.~

Jean Edwards Cellars

Entrance to John Edwards Cellars

Karen and John Troisi started Jean Edwards Cellars in 2004 and released their first wine in 2006, which was spectacular. Wine Spectator Magazine named them as one of "20 new cabernet producers to watch that could be the next cult wines". Jean Edwards Cellars is in the good company of well-known producers such as Scarecrow, Kapscandy, Ghost Block, MacAuley, and Oakville East. The fruit for this wine comes from the Stagecoach Vineyard located on Pritchard Hill on the eastern side of the Napa Valley. Their vines (neighboring with Paul Hobbs) have produced a delicious full-bodied, solid and classically styled Napa Cabernet. In the glass deep garnet-purple, with lovely dark cassis, plum, cedar and earth notes, hints of tobacco and vanilla and a delicious hint of dark chocolate on the palate. Aged 24 months in French Oak, the wine is 92% cabernet sauvignon and 8% cabernet franc. Jean Edwards Cellars produces full-bodied and wines yet not at all over the top, this wine has a balance and fineness that so many of the huge framed super expensive Napa Cabs seem to lack. Drinkable now, especially with a decanter, it will continue to gain complexity with additional cellaring for 5-10 years. Production was a mere 250 cases.~

Oreana Winery

The name Oreana comes from the grand ranching days of California’s Central Coast. Oreana is a term used by cattle ranchers for an unbranded calf that strays onto your property and is therefore yours to keep. Think of it as found treasure or the renegade spirit of this beautiful region and the wines we produce here. Oreana, Santa Barbara's downtown winery.

Located in Sonoma County, California, one of the world's premier wine producing areas, McIlroy Wines is a small, family based winery that creates outstanding wines. Only a small number of cases are produced each year.

Franciscan Estates

Spacious, classy, inviting, beautiful fountain in the front, cool patio! The limited edition tasting we got were actually being server outside in the patio, so it was super cool to sit comfortably at a table and have the wine brought out to us. Pretty reasonable too, 4/$15.
