Vitner's Collective in the historic Pfeiffer Building in NapaRaised in France, Garret Murphy came to Napa Valley years ago as a restaurant consultant for Auberge du Soleil and Meadowood.
Before long, his growing interest in wine set him to dreaming about opening a shop that featured notable wines.
Vitner's Collective 1st floor wine tasting barThe result: in 2002 he opened Vintner’s Collective, which provides tasting space for more than a dozen small, artisan wineries inside Napa’s oldest stone building (constructed in 1875). Inside, the décor is pure “wine chic,” with a comfy, casual, and decidedly upscale feel.
Vintner's Collective upstairs seatingThe wines produced by members of Vintner’s Collective tend to receive high ratings from major wine publications, something that is reflected in the price of most wines here. So if you’re looking for cheap wine, you’ll probably be disappointed. But if you want to sample a range of high-end wines at a relatively low tasting cost, this is the place to come
You can learn more about the Collective’s wineries by visiting their individual websites:  Ancien Wines, Buoncristiani Family Winery, Clark-Claudon Vineyards, Chiarello Family Vineyards, D-Cubed Cellars, Destino, Gregory Graham Wines, JC Cellars, Longfellow Wines, Melka Wines, Mi Sueno Winery, Parallel Wines, Phelan Vineyard, Richard Perry Vineyards, Showket Vineyards, and Vinoce Vineyards.

Fascinating Fact:
