Ashes & Diamonds Winery is a love letter to Napa Valley as it was when it took the world stage in the 1960s, revealing itself, along with Santa Cruz, as a geological wonderland capable of world-class wines.
Located at the gateway of Napa Valley, along its main artery, Highway 29, Ashes & Diamonds Winery’s mid-century approach extends to its architecture. As an homage, the iconic zig-zag roof and portholes are a few of the iconic references to the heritage of California mid-century modern design, seamlessly integrated with a state-of-the-art wine production facility surrounded by light, airy landscapes and playful, rolling berms.
Ashes & Diamonds Winery is the ultimate convergence of modern and old-school flavors, committed to offering a wide-ranging group of wines that adhere to an ethos of light-handed winemaking and transparency of terroir.
A tasting of four wines from our current release. The tasting can be enjoyed in our lounge area, at our tasting bar or on our outdoor patio looking out onto the estate vineyards.

The A&D Vintage Experience provides a retrospective tasting opportunity for the wine scholar looking to explore the iconic and storied mid-century era of Napa Valley.

Following a private tour of the estate vineyards, production facility and cellar, guests will be seated for a private tasting including rare Napa bottlings from the '60s and '70s, alongside current and upcoming releases from A&D. The tasting will be capped by a five-course meal of classic steakhouse fare prepared by our resident chefs. Click to reserve via email, or call to speak with our Concierge — 707.666.4777.
