Introducing Our New Digs!

As most of you long-time friends know, Amici Cellars is no newcomer to the Napa Valley. We’re a group of close friends that have been making wine since the 1990’s, because wine and friends and fun are all inseparable parts of a life well lived. Our mission is to create some of the best wine coming out of California, and offer it at prices people can afford. To do this, we’ve been rigorous about keeping our standards up and our overhead low which meant, for many years, no winery and no tasting room of our own.

But when a beautiful plot of land with a home and winery came available last spring at a reasonable price, we knew we could finally have what we always wanted: a place to call home.

The Amici guest house is a newly-built modern farmhouse, where we enjoy hosting friends new and old.

Our winery and tasting room are located outside the town of Calistoga on Old Lawley Toll Road. We love the quiet, rural character of the neighborhood. And we especially love the views of the Palisades mountain range right outside our window.Image

So, welcome to the new digs. We finally have our winery and our tasting room, which is open by appointment. Now that our tasting room is open, we can’t wait to meet all of you in person. If you’re in the area, we would love to hear from you so we can schedule a tasting and a tour around the new property for you.

Anyone up for a barrel room tasting?

 

 

Budbreak

And we have budbreak! It’s been a wet spring, the vines are happy, and the new growing season in the vineyards has begun. This shot was taken between storms that brought hard rain, thunder and lightening. Very exciting weather for the Napa Valley.
