Some of Our Winery Partners

Holman Cellars

Holman Cellars

Holman Cellars is a family owned and operated micro-winery located in South Napa. With a wine production of roughly 400 cases, owners Helen and Jason Holman are dedicated to producing the highest quality wines while keeping production super small. A unique experience from the moment you walk in the door, tasters can participate in the process of making wine, sampling from barrels, fermentation, analysis, and even bottling the wines. Having graduated from the Napa Valley Wine Academy, the Holmans also import wines from small family wine producers in France.
Holman Cellars is excited to partner with the Napa Valley Wine Academy.

Foley Johnson Winery

Foley Johnson Winery is located in the prestigious Rutherford AVA of Napa Valley. The winery is conveniently located on the east side of Highway 29 in Rutherford. The hospitality center is housed in an old converted redwood barn built in the 1920s. The winery is a gravity-flow facility located behind the hospitality center. Below the winemaking area is an underground barrel room, wine library and a modern gravity-flow cellar.

Sullivan Vineyards & Winery

Today, Sullivan Vineyards & Winery remains one of the few family owned estates in Napa Valley.

Inheriting their parents’ vision, Sean, Ross, and Kelleen have combined the beauty of their unique family estate with the integrity of world-class winegrowing and professional management. The combination speaks to today’s Sullivan renaissance.

Firestone Vineyard

The Santa Ynez Valley winery tasting room, in Los Olivos, offers one of the Central Coast’s most comfortable and comprehensive visitor experiences, including daily winery tours and extensive picnic facilities. The tasting room features an island bar and picture windows that overlook our estate vineyards. We strive to offer an informative and welcoming atmosphere that will appeal to wine enthusiasts and novices alike.

 CADE Estate Winery

CADE Estate Winery sits high above the fog line on the dramatic slopes of Howell Mountain, just northeast of the town of St. Helena. The building’s striking architecture, a dialogue between gentle contours and strong rectilinear forms, suggests the complexity of our wines– powerful yet nuanced expressions of our mountain terroir. The winery blends right in with the impressive contrasts of our estate, a spot where cultivated vineyard rows meet tall evergreens and native Manzanita trees, all set against a backdrop of staggering Napa Valley vistas for a visitor experience not soon forgotten.


Phifer Pavitt Wines

Based in Calistoga, Phifer Pavitt Wines is the realization of a dream of Suzanne Phifer Pavitt and Shane Pavitt, who over the course of several years of ‘date nights,’ hatched the idea of their own Napa Valley winery. The winery is housed in a historic “Napa Valley vernacular” barn, with a board-and-batten facade and a metal roof, nestled into a scenic spot looking out over views of Napa Valley. The barn-winery was re-purposed with touches including recycled-blue-jeans as insulation and rusty hay baling wire from the property fashioned into chandeliers and light fixtures. The upstairs of the barn-winery includes re-purposed Wyoming snow fencing planks, a black walnut tasting counter suspended from the ceiling and hay bale seating.

RarecatRARECAT Wines is a family owned and run winery with a focus on elegant, balanced estate-grown wines influenced from our Napa roots and Bordeaux palate.  Proprietor Sharon Kazan Harris explains: “Creating wine is so much more than cultivating and bottling great fruit. It really is a passion, a passion that drives us to create something rare and exquisite, something elusive, but something that once discovered remains with you forever. This was the genesis for RARECAT. The true importance of wine is not only the beauty one finds in the glass but the conversations and friendships one develops while sharing something special.”
