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.

Join us on Sunday, September 29th for a special tasting of White Bordeaux wines curated by Ashes & Diamonds winemaker, Steve Matthiasson.
Bordeaux is the birth-place of Sauvignon Blanc. Shhh...don’t tell our neighbors, but this grape is actually older than Cabernet Sauvignon.
Spend the afternoon with the grande dames that inspired our Blanc, such as Smith-Haut Lafitte Blanc and Domaine de Chevalier Blanc.
$60 per person. $30 for A&D Members.
Space is limited.

With three distinctive wines from three different California AVAs, the collection is united by a common theme: structure defined by rich fruit, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. These elements offer our culinary team the opportunity to put its best foot forward: bold flavors to complement the fruit character, acidity and fat to balance tannins and an umami character to enhance the wine’s natural acidity.
Join winemaker Diana Snowden Seysses for an intimate dinner showcasing these distinctive wines and the best the A&D kitchen has to offer.
$250 ($200 for Members)
