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.

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.

Our first ever wine-and-cheese pairing couples a vertical flight of Grand Vin (vintages 2014 to 2016) with a fromagerie journey from the valleys of Jura to the bordering Alps, including a foray into cave-aged and unpasteurized imports.
Afternoon Tea + Wines combines the time-honored ritual and leisurely splendor of the classic British afternoon tea service with a flair for the contemporary. The architecture is the same: communion around a three-tiered platter, but with international sandwiches and accompanying nibbles, paired with an Ashes & Diamonds flight of wines—and finished with a complimentary splash of tea from among Her Majesty’s finest.
